The digital age beckons businesses to fortify their security defenses more than ever. Leading the charge against cyber threats is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). However, with evolving challenges, CISOs require a unified security platform that's both comprehensive and efficient. Enter Vanta, the embodiment of security oversight. And when coupled with BD Emerson's expertise in SOC 2 readiness, businesses gain an unparalleled advantage.
