Build vs. Buy

Small to mid-size businesses have few, if any, dedicated InfoSec personnel and have several cybersecurity solutions that are usually redundant which means these part-time InfoSec personnel are not masters at running the tech or understanding the event flows. A 2019 Deloitte Consulting survey found a part-time InfoSec staff in a mid-size business (>500 assets) may spend up to 8 times more over a two-year period building and operating their own Security Operation Center (SOC), a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) approach, versus subscribing to SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS). It’s expensive, it’s time consuming, it’s not nearly as effective and it is not what you do!

Despite best investments in cyber defenses, cyber adversaries can circumvent preventive measures. Consequently, organizations’ cybersecurity strategies must follow a triple path; 1- prevention to reduce the attack surface, 2 – detection and response to counter threats that circumvent prevention and 3- threat hunting to hunt the bad guys before they can even get started on compromising your assets. While all three are essential, organizations struggle with cost and operational barriers. Simply, the cost of building and equipping a DIY SOC is prohibitive, and the expertise out of reach. There is, however, a new approach to accomplishing positive threat detection and response outcomes at a price that is multiples less than a DIY SOC.

Organizations large and small in every industry are at risk of major breach. That’s why all companies need a SOC and a security team well-versed in incident response.
