CISO Coaching Services Tailored to Higher Education

Get expert guidance and support from an experienced higher education cybersecurity leader to strengthen your institution’s information security strategy.

CampusCISO Coaching Services

Our coaching services are designed with the understanding that educational institutions should be able to access top-tier cybersecurity expertise without it being a significant cost. As a higher education CIO or CISO, you’ll find our services tailored to fit your needs.

Our services aren’t just about providing guidance, but about becoming an extension of your team. We offer a valuable outside perspective as you strengthen your cybersecurity strategy. With over two decades of experience in university CISO and service provider leadership roles, we’re here to augment your team and support the unique needs of higher education.

Why Choose our Coaching Services?

Working with CampusCISO means choosing a personalized approach from someone that understands your world. 

When you choose our coaching services, you can expect:

  • A Partner for Your Team: We’re not just consultants, we’re an extension of your team.
  • Designed for Colleges and Universities: We understand the unique needs of colleges and universities, and our services reflect that.
  • Experience You Can Trust: With over two decades of higher education experience, we’ve been where you are.
  • Affordability: We believe that every institution should have access to expert guidance, which is why we strive to keep our services affordable.

The Power of Coaching

Coaching is about more than just providing a service, it’s about empowering you and your team. Unlike traditional virtual CISO (vCISO) or consulting services, we don’t just do the work for you. We equip your team with the knowledge and skills they need to excel.

Empowering Your Team

We believe in the power of coaching to transform teams and enhance their capabilities. Our approach is centered around enabling your team to work more effectively, rather than doing the work for them.

Tailored Approach

Every institution is unique, and so are our coaching services. We tailor our approach to fit your specific needs and challenges, ensuring that you get the most out of our coaching engagements.

Our Approach to Coaching Services

Initial Consultation

We start by listening to understand your unique challenges. Every institution has different needs, and we start by working with you to determine if coaching might be a fit for your institution.

CampusCISO Compass Group Coaching Sessions

The CampusCISO Compass Coaching Retainer provides weekly group coaching sessions (i.e. “office hours”) where you can reserve time to ask questions, review your assessment results, and gain insights into potential solutions that can help accomplish your cybersecurity goals. This is an affordable solution to get help evaluating your cybersecurity technology investments and gaining vendor-neutral insights into potential solutions and approaches to strengthening your cybersecurity program.

CampusCISO Pathfinder Strategy Workshop

The CampusCISO Pathfinder Coaching Retainer provides individual coaching sessions where we work together to complete your initial CYBER HEAT MAP assessment. Once complete, we help you identify key areas of focus and set achievable goals for your team. It’s an ideal starting point for institutions looking to strengthen their cybersecurity strategy.

CampusCISO Navigator Coaching Retainer

The CampusCISO Navigator Coaching Retainer provides ongoing support throughout the year through weekly coaching sessions. This retainer includes regular check-ins and mentorship to help you stay on track and navigate any challenges that arise. It’s an affordable option for institutions looking for a trusted advisor to help support your security program.
