Data leaks, ransomware attacks, and malicious hackers have been daily news over the past year. This mainstreaming of cyber threats has made organizations realize that poor cybersecurity is not just about a single computer shutting down. They now know that they face the potential corruption of their entire network, as well as the function and integrity of their organization.
Unfortunately, the hazards are only increasing as technology advances. If 2016 was the year of cyber threats, then 2017 is projected to be an all-out cyber war. So, as you explore solutions to bolster your cyber army, here are some reasons why organizations are looking for external security solutions:
1. Organizations can focus on their core functions. The sectors hardest hit by cyber attacks have been healthcare; finance & banking; and education, schools & universities. Organizations in these sectors have key objectives–wellness, investments, and learning–that have nothing to do with cybersecurity. However, they understand that robust information security is the only way they can continue to operate and reach those objectives.
2. Organizations can leave the tough stuff to the experts. We turn to specialists to handle challenges outside of our scope–from surgeons to accountants. These specialists have an in-depth understanding of the issues and have the resources to manage them properly. With a cybersecurity company, you are tapping into an entire organization dedicated to the 24/7 defense of your networks.
3. Organizations can find a security plan that fits their specific needs. Cybersecurity is no longer a one-box solution. Whether your organization has no information security presence or runs an entire department, there are a variety of customized solutions that can be seamlessly integrated. These range from managed security services to trusted advisor services.
