The Cybersecurity labor shortage makes it an exciting time to be a service provider

  • Vulnerability management. Enterprise networks are ever-changing and understanding how systems are vulnerable can quickly become a manpower intensive task.
  • Firewall/SIEM. We are hearing from multiple vendors about vendors selling these products only to have customers re-engage months later asking for managed services.
  • Governance and compliance. The management of the cybersecurity program itself is also a task that quickly grows in scope. Firms who engage in B2B relationships are getting increased requests for compliance checks by their customers.
  • Demands by the board. If the enterprise gets breached (or even another firm in the industry vertical), the board may take notice. This often leads to an external assessment and a long list of tasks that have to be implemented.
