IT Security has never been more important than it is today, but the problem for IT managers is that it has never been more confusing and daunting. Protecting your organization from breaches, ensuring compliance with a growing list of regulations (SOX, HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, etc.) can seem like an endless and impossible task. And it ranks #1 on the list of issues that keep IT Managers up at night.
Managing IT Security on your own comes with a whole suite of issues. How can you make sure your staff is up-to-date in the knowledge and skills required for such an undertaking? If you are able to keep your staff up-to-date and trained, how do you make sure they’re paid adequately and protected from poaching by other IT managers in your position? Any security staff worth their salt probably get at least one recruiting call a day. Finally, how can any one department keep compliant with all of the new regulations that keep cropping up every year?

You can leverage the experience and staff of a world-class security firm while sharing the cost and still making sure your organization is protected.
