Anyone been successful using a vCiso? Can you share what worked and what was a struggle?

I've been in a situation where the use of a vCISO was considered as a temporary stopgap while a permanent CISO was recruited.  The decision was made not to pursue the option because of the ramp-up time needed to really learn the business.  A vCISO seems like a solid option for a small company that doesn't need or can't afford a full-time experienced CISO.  Having a vCISO that really understands the business would be my primary concern.
