The years 2010 and 2011 will definitely go down in history as two years where business learned to do more with less. So why would a company consider using a security consultant to work with them on their security program? I can guess what you are thinking – we have security people and the Internet so we can do Google searches and figure things out for ourselves. Sometimes this works, but often the answer is no.
A reputable security consultant is a solution provider. In essence, they don’t have a dog in the fight – no equipment quotas, no product that undersold, and no technology that they are trying to get out of the back room. A security consultant is focused on performance-based results that fit with the security culture, infrastructure, and mission of the company at a price point that is reasonable.
A company hires a consultant for their expertise, resources, and objectivity. The security industry is full of salespersons who know just enough about security to sell their product. This may work short term, but it often ends with disastrous results. Security is a combination of people, processes, and technology. Instead of focusing on technology, the consultant’s focus is on the end result, the protection of company’s assets, and the goals and objectives of the customer. This means that the ROI for the customer is better security at a better price. We are successful when our customer has the right mixture of people, processes, and technology to support its mission and when our customer is seen as successful to his or her boss.
