Build vs Buy - Forrester's Security & Risk Practice Playbook

Why Read This Report
This report outlines a sourcing strategy and Forrester’s decision support solution for security and risk (S&R) executives working to build a high-performance security program and organization. We designed this report to help you make the decision to build or buy your security services. Interest in outsourcing security services is on the rise. In fact, according to our Forrsights Security Survey, from 2010 to 2011, there was a 14% increase in the level of interest in implementing security using third parties. At the same time, managed security service providers (MSSPs) report revenue growth in excess of 30%. To make an informed business decision, CISOs must assess and compare services that MSSPs could deliver with the services that the CISO could deliver with internal staff. Outsourcing appropriate security services to MSSPs can sometimes provide better security while also freeing up scarce resources to focus on what really matters.
