There are so many providers of cyber security advisory services that it’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re shopping around. Many businesses fall into this trap, only to realize too late that they chose the wrong advisory services provider, resulting in subpar protection and solutions that aren’t tailored to their specific needs. To help you avoid making the same mistake, here are questions you should ask every potential cyber security advisory services provider before signing a contract with them.
1) What is your experience in the field of cybersecurity?
Hackers are becoming more sophisticated, and it’s important to have an expert help you mitigate the risks. I’ve been in the cybersecurity field since 2002 and have consulted with a wide range of clients, including large corporations and government agencies. I’m also active in my local chapter of InfraGard, an FBI-coordinated program that brings together members of the public and private sector.
2) What are the most common cybersecurity threats that businesses face?
There are a number of different cybersecurity threats that a business may face. Some of the most common include hacking, malware, and malware-infected devices. What is your cybersecurity strategy? It’s important to have a cybersecurity strategy in place before you engage any cyber security advisory services. Your cyber security advisory service provider should be able to walk you through all the details of their strategy and offer their perspective on what would work best for your business.
3) What are your company’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to cybersecurity?

Data is the lifeblood of a business, so it is important to understand what protections are in place. If you’re considering investing in cyber security advisory services, make sure they have strong policies on data sharing and data security so that your company’s most valuable asset will be protected.
5) What is your company’s philosophy on cybersecurity?
At the end of the day, no one can solve cybersecurity problems as well as its owner. This is why our philosophy on cybersecurity revolves around five key questions:
– are you prepared?
– are your people prepared?
– have you identified any gaps in security?
– what is your risk tolerance level?
– how do you plan to measure success?
