Utilizing a managed service provider for your organization’s entire IT department or for a specific need (e.g. network management) is a great way to provide value to your organization without having to hire and maintain a team of professionals. Unfortunately, many organizations believe that outsourcing IT services washes their hands of security responsibilities. Utilizing a service provider does not alleviate all cybersecurity risks from your organization.
