Over the past decade, the level of attacks, breaches, and potential dangers to vital data have escalated to the point where organizations in every industry need to take measures to ensure their assets and technical infrastructure are safeguarded.

The approach you take to continuously monitoring for threats and vulnerabilities can vary based on a number of factors, such as existing technology, staffing, and internal processes.

This leaves you with several critical decisions your organization should consider when determining an in-house, or outsourced approach to security operations.
