CSO Online: CIOs and CISOs are turning to Booz Allen to help defend against the growing number of cyber attacks
“Unprepared organizations, when notified of a breach by external entities such as the FBI, are increasingly employing professional security service providers to address security emergencies,” said Frost & Sullivan Network Security Research Director Frank Dickson. “Evasive malware and security skills shortages are driving demand for professional security services. Professional Security Services in North America will reach $1.9 billion in market revenue by 2018.”
"From my experiences as a CISO, every time I bought a new technology, I had to hire additional people onto the team in order to run it, and then in a couple of years we had to deal with upgrades and obsolescence issues,” says Minick. “Add to this the challenges of finding and retaining talent and it becomes a very difficult spot to be in. These forces are what drove us to create Booz Allen. By partnering with our customers, Booz Allen is able to deliver the people, process, and technology required to counter the most advanced attacks."
