Corporate politics

WHY IS THIS BETTER THAN HIRING MY OWN EMPLOYEES?

The reality is this - it makes way more sense to outsource your cybersecurity than to staff your own team. Outsourcing your cybersecurity efforts to GreyCastle Security makes sense financially, operationally and practically. Here's why:

Financially

It is time-consuming and expensive to recruit and retain top cybersecurity talent. Multiply that by the number of experts you need and the bill adds up quickly. And don't forget that cybersecurity salaries are skyrocketing.

Operationally

Even if you are lucky enough to hire a cybersecurity professional, they can only be an expert at just so many things. At some point, this person will run out of room in their brain to stuff more cybersecurity into. Cybersecurity is a big job - you need expertise in many areas.

Practically

Your cybersecurity expert is going to get sick, have bad days, go on vacation and then quit for a better job somewhere else. You need experts you can count on to provide security for your organization all the time.
