Overkill or ‘Just Right’ The Cybersecurity Roles of Service Providers
ThreatTalk season 4 episode 6
Service Providers are pitching a growing range of options to businesses of all sizes in a world where cybersecurity has become so complex and resource-intensive that no one can do it all on their own. Guest David Ayers, a veteran of the service provider space, will help us kick off a new series on service providers, beginning with a review of where telecom started, where it is today, and what it might offer in a future of 5G, connected cars, and other imminent world-changing technologies. This series will be a great supplement to other episodes on consultant and channel partner service offerings to help listeners balance the best ways to achieve their desired security posture within budget, time, people, and other realities.
