Best Practices in Virtual CIO (vCIO) Services

Recently, Corserva's VP of Technical Services, Sean McCloat, CISSP, was interviewed by Xaas Journal for an article on best practices that managed service providers (MSP) should follow when delivering virtual CIO services to clients. 

Read the complete article here: "How to Build the Best vCIO Offering."

How the Role of vCIO Can Benefit Your Business

Although the size of your company may not warrant a full time chief information officer (CIO) on staff, that doesn't mean your business can go without the critical technical advice the role of a vCIO provides.


"The vCIO should provide recommendations to the client where changes should be made, without promoting the MSP's services."

—Sean McCloat, CISSP
