The Importance of Professional Services in Cyber Security

22 Oct
Company, Industry

Continuing on the broader theme of Security Awareness and Security Services, we turn our attention to the important role that Professional Services play in the security industry.

A wise person once said that knowing what one does not know is the first step to finding answers. Of course, there are many reasons to seek out a Professional Service Provider, including concerns of operational efficiency, staffing, compliance best practices and so forth, but the skills and advice of experienced and specialized experts top the list. In other words, we can all benefit from the guidance of professionals sometimes to advise us in areas where awareness is harder to come by.

Today we’re taking a deep dive into the world of Professional Services and how simply the guidance and knowledge of trained security professionals can ultimately better your business.

What Are Professional Services?

In most cases, Professional Services are project based services that require an skilled engineer or architect for a one-time project or short-term change in your organization; or a senior consultant to provide a wide range of risk advisory services. Project teams will also typically address any ongoing support or maintenance after the initial project is complete.

Secure Sense’s implementation and support experts are experienced in a wide variety of Professional Services engagements with specialized tactical teams within our extended technical bench focused on specific technologies and or products.

Our cybersecurity consultant team and senior architects hold a broad range of top industry certifications and credentials, along with many years of experience in the industry. Our methodologies for common engagement types have been developed and refined to reflect the most up-to-date best practices and to scale to projects of any size, including global enterprise enablement.

What’s Included in Secure Sense’s Professional Services Portfolio?

Why Your Organization Would Benefit from Professional Services

Like we said before, it comes down to knowing what one does not know is the first step to finding answers. The reality is that deploying, managing and maintenance of any new and unfamiliar technologies is hard (and expensive!) When organizations recognize these hurdles and understand the value of a professional services team, you’re one step closer to safer, smarter security practices.

Organizations that implement a professional service solution can benefit in the following ways:

  1. Access to professional and skilled expertise
  2. Access to top of the line security practices
  3. Fast delivery of service
  4. Reduce time and cost
