We Get It… As critical as information security is, not all organizations can justify the additional expense of hiring an internal resource. With the median salary for just one IT security professional ranging from $60,000 to $100,000, adding in benefits, taxes and other expenses, the cost of hiring additional employees can be prohibitive.
