Don't be scared of outsourcing your security needs
My late father always told me that in order to be successful I should play to my strengths. He was talking about life skills, but his words stuck with me when it came to business as well. Nearly 25 years ago when a career change was being forced upon me, I reflected upon what I was good at and it turned out that my skills were: writing, conversation and hacking. So I put these things to good use and became a security consultant and journalist. Given that the 'focus on what you know' advice is pretty much business 101 stuff, why is it then that so many organisations find it so hard to outsource their security needs?
