Recently, there’s been a spike in the number of businesses embracing digital transformation due to the limitations and challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, companies are less focused on the risks of shifting to digital than on the opportunities and possibilities presented by it. According to an EY research, only 36% of new technology-enabled business initiatives include cybersecurity teams from the start. As a result, companies are more prone to cybersecurity threats. Mitigating and addressing these threats can be challenging, especially if you have limited to no experience in cybersecurity and because of the high labor cost of building an in-house cybersecurity team. How can outsourcing cybersecurity help you overcome cybersecurity risks despite these challenges?
- Access to World-Class Talent at a Reduced Operational Cost
Overall, outsourcing will cost you less than building an actual team because it gives you access to expertise and increased cybersecurity efficiency without much of the overhead cost. Outsourced IT support teams have most likely been already trained on the ins and outs of cybersecurity. This means that you won’t have to cover training and capacity development costs. Outsourcing also gives you flexibility: it is up to your IT partner to customize a solution that is most cost-effective and that fits your needs as a company.
Another reason why outsourcing is cost-effective is that in the long run, it helps you avoid cybersecurity threats that would cost you a lot more by compromising or stealing your data. If you don’t already have a solution in place, the costs of repetitional damage, higher insurance premiums, and fees for emergency IT services are likely to be higher. Because of their access to world-class, A+ recruitment process for hiring to on-boarding in 30-45 days, the right partner can also project an overall operational savings of up to 70%.
- Internal Information Security Measures
Most cybersecurity threats take advantage of obtained or stolen information or data, and this is one area where an outsourced IT team can help. A good partner knows that privacy is tantamount to information security and therefore implements strong security measures that reduce privacy breaches. With their help, you can extend these security measures to your company’s data and avoid most of the threats related to cybersecurity.
Their operations and associated client information are housed in state-of-the-art facilities with controlled access areas that provide 24/7 security. They offer comprehensive information security & data protection process ensures that all company and information is ultimately safe at all times and are certified and compliant with:
• ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 9001:2015
• General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
• Philippine Data Privacy Act of 2012
• Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- Keeping Up-to-date on IT and Cybersecurity Trends
It’s hard to keep track of technological advancements and how they can affect your company and the cybersecurity threats surrounding it, so it’s helpful to have an IT partner that is on top of the trends and knows about the latest IT tools (e.g. Sysinternals Suite, Recuva, Virtual CloneDrive) and emerging cybersecurity issues at a larger scale. Being up-to-date means that they also constantly enhance the capabilities of their IT experts to keep up with the ever-changing technological landscape. By outsourcing your IT needs, you can be sure that your company evolves with technology, which is extremely helpful in detecting and addressing cybersecurity vulnerabilities and gaps.
Investing in cybersecurity, especially now that almost anything can be done through digital platforms, is a smart move, no matter the size of your company. Just make sure to find an outsourcing partner that can offer data and back office support that help you build a great and high-performing cybersecurity team based on your company’s needs.
- >60 Net Promoter Score
The right outsourcing partner has a Net Promoter Score of >60. This score helps businesses gauge the quality service the outsourcing company is offering. In a way, this represents the primary capabilities and expertise they provide to their clients through result-based surveys on how much satisfied their clients are with the cybersecurity support services they are receiving from their outsourcing partner. It also showcases how well the outsourcing partner is performing in terms of cybersecurity and the client’s overall experience from their service. A High Net Promoter Score results in a sense of security and peace of mind for the client from operation excellence and hitting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as Mean Time to Resolve (team’s response to cyberattacks), Mean Time to Detect (how long it takes your team to become aware of cyberattacks) and overall team productivity.
Lastly, the right outsourcing partner promises for the following:
- Operational excellence
- Build a great, high-performing cybersecurity support team specifically designed for your security needs
- Operational cost savings of up to 70%
- 90% Mean Time to Detect (MTTD)
- 90% Mean Time to Resolve (MTTR)
- 95% team productivity
- ISO 27001 and 9001 certified, GDPR, HIPAA and DPA20212-compliant
- Net Promoter Score: Sense of security and peace of mind
