Do you know why cybersecurity expertise is so important?
The fact is that, even if you deployed all the necessary cybersecurity technologies, invested in all the necessary tools and solutions, and did everything you could to protect your business, you’d still be missing one thing—cybersecurity expertise.
Does your staff have the skills and experience needed to keep you protected?
Cybersecurity expertise is in high demand these days. As cybercrime continues to grow, and as businesses become more and more digital in their operations, cybersecurity becomes a much more critical priority. However, there’s only so much cybersecurity talent available to hire.
When you’re not sure if you have the skills or knowledge to get the job done, what can you do? Consult with cybersecurity professionals.
The question you need to ask yourself is whether you can confidently manage cybersecurity on your own.
The short answer is “maybe, but probably not”. Especially for members of highly regulated industries like healthcare and financial services.
In theory, it's entirely possible that, if you've invested in the right technologies, and have the right skill set, you could handle cybersecurity for your business all on your own. You would find your vulnerabilities, manage your policies, monitor your alerts, and everything else that comes with operating a secure business IT environment.
When it comes to protecting against the ongoing, evolving cybersecurity threats in play today, managing cybersecurity is, understandably, a tall order. For you to effectively fill the role of an IT security company, you would need…
The knowledge of how to select, configure, optimize and maintain increasingly complex IT security technologies. Do you have that kind of know-how?
You’d also need the time to both find vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis and respond to events as they occur. If you can't afford to make cybersecurity your full-time job, then do you really think you can stay on top of it?
For all these reasons, it’s recommended that business owners simply outsource their cybersecurity for complete management by an IT company they can rely on—these companies are also known as MSSPs, which means they offer cybersecurity expertise.
In fact, whereas nearly a quarter of businesses in the Enterprise Communications Survey have already moved to a managed security model, nearly 45% have plans to do so within the next year.
You may be thinking you already know the right IT company for your organization. But before you sign on the dotted line, you need to be sure they’re going to deliver everything you need.
While it’s certainly frustrating to have to do some homework before you sign an agreement, it’s vital that you make sure all your needs will be addressed before you make it official.
Even though you may have a contract that states and governs the managed services, your contract may still lack significant details—it's better to check now and consider moving on, instead of finding out you're not covered after you've locked into an agreement.
That said, even if you've already entered into a contract with an IT company, that doesn't mean it's too late to ask them a few questions.
The Orbis Solutions team believes the only way to effectively develop cybersecurity is through a fully managed approach that builds a culture of best practices, in combination with a range of carefully chosen technologies.
We can provide managed security solutions that address your company’s specific needs, and we can do so in a cost-effective manner. Book a meeting with our globally ranked cybersecurity team today.
