Can't Afford to Hire Cybersecurity Staff? Do This Instead

This week, Staples made headlines when the company hired its first-ever chief information security officer (CISO). According to Network World, this individual will report to the company’s chief technology officer and will be responsible for controlling enterprise-wide information, and for product and security data.

Now, as a business leader, this announcement may have you feeling a bit shorted. We have spoken with many executives who have expressed the desire to hire more cybersecurity experts but simply lack the capital to do so.

At the same time, the need for cybersecurity expertise has never been greater — especially for small to medium-sized businesses.

Consider the following statistics:

Plus, attacks are intensifying in nature: 

  • Ransomware on healthcare organizations will quadruple by 2020.
  • 11 billion lines of new software code will be created, and will require securing, in 2017.

So as you can see, cybersecurity is no joke. The threat is very real. And over the next few years, the threat landscape is only going to intensify further. 

With this in mind, choosing to continue without cybersecurity guidance is simply not an option anymore. Businesses that cannot afford to hire internal cybersecurity experts should consider outsourcing the process to a managed services provider (MSP) like Apex Technology Services — premier computer consultants serving the greater New York City area and beyond.
