According to a 2020 (ISC)2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, there's a shortage of 3 million cybersecurity professionals globally. The growing threat landscape, heavy investment requirements in cybersecurity, and lack of in-house expertise negatively impact organizations. As a result, many organizations are looking to partially or fully outsource their cybersecurity needs to a trusted provider. Outsourcing presents an excellent opportunity for partners to assess and address growing customer demands with current or third-party resources.
Ingram Micro's Cybersecurity Practice Builder provides a roadmap for partners who want to build their security practice or enhance an existing one.
