In honor of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (October), I thought it fitting to touch on the drivers for cybersecurity consulting services.
It is no secret that cyber-attacks are more prevalent and sophisticated today than last year (and maybe even last week). This, along with the fear of being the next company splashed all over the news due to a cyber breach and having to shell out the big bucks to rectify damage, perform an investigation and invest in preventing a repeat attack, are driving companies of all shapes and sizes and across geographies and industries to invest in cybersecurity. Including cybersecurity consulting services, which is a good way for a company to sort-out and understand which IT investments will help reduce the chance of a cyberattack, better predict an attack and minimize damage.
There are several key factors at play driving cybersecurity consulting client spend:
A company will never be 100% secure from a cyber-attack, but engaging with cybersecurity consulting experts will help minimize the risk and decrease vulnerabilities.
Happy National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
