vCIO Services for Financial Institutions
For some financial institutions, hiring a full-time, executive IT role isn’t always possible. CSI’s vCIO services give your bank access to experienced industry professionals with significant bank-related CIO experience.
With vCIO services, we can help make sure your IT strategy supports your institution's goals.
What is a vCIO?
CSI Managed Services’ industry veterans partner with your organization to understand your strategic IT objectives. Our vCIOs use that information to ensure that technology recommendations remain aligned with your financial institution’s overall strategic objectives.
Our vCIO services also provide your organization with a holistic approach to addressing critical issues as well as planning and preparing for future needs.
vCIO services offer:
- Participation on your IT steering committee to provide strategic guidance, assist with IT budget planning and develop your IT infrastructure road map
- Assistance in the development and maintenance of your IT strategic plan, definition of IT projects and supervision of strategic banking technology initiatives
- Examination and IT audit consultation, including how to respond to IT-related questionnaires for third-party and regulatory agencies, third-party IT audit support and consultation to prioritize audit-finding remediation
- Disaster recovery planning, including consultation for enhancements to disaster recovery testing procedures and assisting with the development of your business continuity planning program
The cost of employing a dedicated CIO in a smaller financial institution can be prohibitive and difficult to justify, but it shouldn’t stop you from seeking the strategic insight you need to strengthen your bank’s technology posture.
