Balancing In-house and Outsourced SecOps
ThreatTalk season 2 episode 12
30 years ago, cyber security involved little more than firewalls and desktop AV. But today’s security tools, expertise, and services are so numerous and complex that few if any, organizations can claim to have everything they need ‘in-house’. Due to various needs and constraints, including budgets, it is a constant struggle to balance what capabilities should be in-house and which can be safely outsourced.
This episode of ThreatTalk explores the fundamentals behind most outsourcing decisions with the help of telco and service provider veteran David Ayers and Infoblox Principal Solutions Architect Philip Miller. Join host Bob Hansmann and his guests for this exploratory discussion on “getting help” with your cybersecurity.
