WHO IT’S FOR: This was written for IT decision makers, who are “forced” to choose between securing particular vectors. If you make IT budget decisions, choices about the architecture of your environment, or how your organization is secured - it doesn’t need to be this way! Read on for how.
WHAT’S IN IT: This asset includes a breakdown of what impossible tradeoffs are, and why they are especially important and problematic in cybersecurity; and how they spring up. We then offer a comprehensive comparison of three options (in-house, co-managed, and outsourced) across three prototypical cybersecurity functions (Threat Intelligence, Proactive Preparedness, and Data Monitoring), comparing the pros and cons of each - enabling you to take a balanced approach, based on a framework.
HOW IT HELPS: It helps you avoid impossible tradeoffs, by comparing the options within your budget, early (before it’s spent and you’re running on empty). Impossible tradeoffs are the ones you really can’t afford to make. For example, an organization can’t choose between securing its network or securing its cloud assets, because the one left behind will be targeted.
