SAQ's - Should Ask Questions

It is critical to ask the right questions, when you need the right answers.
How does Silent Sector integrate effectively with my team?

Silent Sector's leadership is directly involved with every PSSP client.  This means you have direct access to industry leaders with 25+ years of experience each, in addition to our team of subject matter experts.

Every client's needs are different and each service is tailored accordingly.  You will have 2-3 primary points of contact, depending on your organization's initiatives.  While most work is completed remotely, communication is ongoing via voice or video conference. 

Our team also enjoys and encourages on-site visits because nothing promotes collaboration and builds rapport quite like meeting face-to-face.  On-site visits also allow us to better understand your physical security posture, staff awareness, individual personalities, and strengths of each team member.

In short, although we're not always in the office next to you, we're with you to provide the support you need, when you need it. 

What can/can't you support?

Every Silent Sector PSSP solution is tailored to our clients' needs, with objectives, scope, and deliverables outlined in advance.  Additionally, we include support through unanticipated events or requirements.

We'll support everything from penetration testing to staff awareness training, compliance to darkweb research.  It is rare that we come across an initiative where we can't add value.  In the event that we don't have the resources to support a project, we will tell you in advance and start looking for the appropriate resource to ensure your bases are covered.

It is important to know that Silent Sector's PSSP solution is NOT a replacement for your in-house staff.  However, if you are looking to hire new staff, we can support the vetting and training of prospects you've identified.

Is the PSSP™ program a fit for my company?

The PSSP service is a fit for just about any organization with a small in-house cybersecurity team.  Our clients find it fits easily within their budget and provides tremendous value.

Companies leveraging PSSP solutions tend to have between 750 to 5,000 employees, with 2-8 people managing cybersecurity internally.  Teams this size often find themselves short on manpower and unable to bring on more staff.  Because of this, companies engage Silent Sector for extra support.  The PSSP was designed through seeing the common (and some unique) struggles small security teams deal with on a daily basis.

Contact us to determine whether the Partnered Security Services Provider program is the right fit for your organization.

What is the duration of the PSSP™ service?
The PSSP duration varies based on your organization's needs and requests.  PSSP engagements start at 6 months and can run as long as you need.  Most clients request 12 or 24 month Statements of Work to begin.
