If you are like many organizations today, you’ve recently been asked by a customer, partners, prospect, or your supply-chain to prove a level of cybersecurity maturity tied to a regulatory or best practices compliance framework.  But, if cybersecurity and compliance are not a core competency of your organization, who do you turn to?

This increasingly common scenario and the growing interrelationship between cybersecurity & compliance and has resulted in the rise of a new category of service providers called Managed Cybersecurity & Compliance Providers (MCCP).  MCCPs speak both cybersecurity & compliance fluently and have integrated these historically separate operational functions into a single and efficient managed program.
