There is much more in Threat Intelligence than just a collection of “indicators of compromise” or security threats. If a business does not understand its potential, identifying and addressing potential vulnerabilities in your operations can cause harm to your business.
Threat Intelligence Analysts are professional intelligence that offers scientific and technical knowledge to solve complex intelligence problems, create short-term and long-term assessments and prevent further risks. But since their work demands initiative, creativity, analytical skills, and technical expertise they belong to the high salary grade professionals with an approximate annual salary of $87-156k on top of a limited pool of expertise in the job market which makes building a team quite challenging.
If you are thinking whether to outsource a Threat Intelligence Analysts team, here are important things to consider and why it is the best decision for your business.
- Efficient Reporting Process
Another important aspect of threat intelligence is risk management due to the complexity of the task at hand. Therefore, having an efficient reporting process is a must to allow business owners and decision makers in making plans and business calls to better the company. Good outsourcing companies have routine analytic and reporting expectations to ensure that data and information are handled properly by its personnel.
Partner with an outsourcing company that can provide your business a tailored cybersecurity risk management solution based on your unique needs. After all, security is risk-based, which is why no single solution fits all. A great outsourcing partner can adapt to your company’s unique needs and has the capability to scale its services in order to prioritize all aspects of your business. In the long run, this will be convenient when you need to scale your solutions together with your changing business needs.
- Access to World-class Talent at a Reduced Cost
Hiring a Threat Intelligence Analysts team is expensive because the experts in the field are not only limited but their level of expertise puts them in the top bracket in terms of salary grade as mentioned above. In addition, the training and certifications for cybersecurity and information security are important but costly. Aside from labor cost, operational expenses such as hardware, software licenses, cloud service subscriptions, and maintenance are equally expensive. But with the right outsourcing partner, their A+ recruitment process and access to world-class talent allows them to build a great, high-performing Threat Intelligence Analysts team within 30-45 days. In addition, they also have access to other certified cybersecurity experts and will curate a competency-based development plan to keep your dedicated team sharp so you won’t need to spend additional training cost giving you a projected operational savings of up to 70%.
An outsourcing company who has access to world-class talent with the required level of skill and expertise in threat intelligence analyst is a must. Since they are handling sensitive and important data, they should also be able to comply with the ethical standards of the industry. These can be reflected in third-party certifications and assessments by hiring people with the any of these certifications:
- ISO 27001 and 9001 certified
- GDPR Compliance
These compliance and certifications mean that if you outsource your cybersecurity team with the right partner, they understand that data security is one of the most crucial elements for a growing business like yours. They also make sure that the team they are building for you are compliant and certified as needed to protect the company. Lastly, they have their own information security to add another layer of protection for their clients.
- >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%
- Reduced threat and cybersecurity risks
- ISO 27001 and 9001 certified, GDPR, HIPAA and DPA20212-compliant
- Net Promoter Score: Sense of security and peace of mind
