CISO National Virtual Panel

September 15, 2020

Calculating the ROI on your security service provider

Working with outsourced security partners can sometimes feel like paying for an expensive black box. What are they really achieving for you and how do they do it? Understanding how, or perhaps even if, your security partner contributes to the ROI on your overall security plan is paramount and can start to reveal where improvements could be made. In this panel discussion, we will hear from peers working within information security how they tackle this challenge and what a good outsourced security partner looks like to them.

Key takeaways:
o An understanding of how your peers see value in their service providers
o A range of options in methodology for calculating security ROI
o An understanding of what good looks like in an outsourced security partner
