Security Residency Services

Gain Efficiency & Effectiveness

Residency ServicesManaging security, risk and compliance in a changing landscape requires having the right skills and expertise available when you need them. However, organizations are challenged to efficiently find and leverage the specialized security expertise needed to support key strategic security initiatives when they arise.

To help organizations overcome this challenge, Dell SecureWorks’ Residency Services provide expert security consultants with advanced skill sets and experience you need to manage your complex strategic security projects and programs.

Residency Services can be independent of or combined with other Dell SecureWorks’ services, such as our Managed Security Services, to further optimize efficiency and drive even greater business value for your organization.

Serving as members of your staff either on-site or remotely, our security consultants extend and heighten the security expertise and capabilities of your team. In addition, you get the benefit of a flexible service delivery model aligned to your staffing and operational budget constraints.

Avoid hiring mistakes and get the right security talent you need

The pool of qualified professionals with deep, specialized security knowledge and experience is often limited. Compounding this problem is your hiring department or executive leadership may not understand the specific qualifications and experience needed to solve your particular challenge. Hiring the wrong person can slow progress as the new hire has to spend extra time learning specific skill sets on the job, and may make mistakes along the way.

Due to Dell SecureWorks’ recognized reputation in security, we are able to attract and retain the best security professionals in the industry, and put this top talent to work for you. We have interviewed thousands of security professionals, and only retain those that meet our stringent standards.

We understand the skill sets, certifications (CISSP, CISA, GWAPT GIAC, INFOSEC, etc.) methodologies (how they conduct projects, rank risk, communicate with customers, etc.) and experience to look for in a highly competent security professional. Besides clear security and technical expertise, we look for business acumen. Our resident consultants must understand business, know how to prioritize findings that balance risk with your particular circumstances, and effectively communicate with technical and non-technical audiences.

As a result, you have the confidence of knowing you have the best security experts in place when you need them, without the risks and headaches associated with hiring new staff.

Scale security resources efficiently

Organizations often require only temporary resources when embarking on new projects. In these circumstances, hiring new staff is not practical as there is no intent to retain the role once the project is done. In addition, taking on a long-term employee for a short-term engagement diminishes the project’s Return on Investment (ROI).

Dell SecureWorks’ Residency Services help you scale the expertise you need while keeping your headcount steady. We can staff temporary resources with just the right skill sets, for just the right amount of time. In addition, we can structure your engagement to best align within the confines of your budget.

Get access to a much larger security organization

Often, IT security professionals must rely on conference and education venues to stay on top of new security trends and practices. This can prove challenging when those same professionals are tasked with additional responsibilities that distract from a disciplined focus on security, or discretionary budget limitations prohibiting travel and training expenses.

Dell SecureWorks’ Residency Services provide access to a much larger security organization. Dell SecureWorks’ resident security consultants possess up-to-date visibility into evolving security threats and access to our top security, risk and compliance experts across our Counter Threat Unit research team, Security Operations Centers and Security & Risk Consulting practices. Our resident security consultants leverage this visibility and access, bringing this expertise to your situation.
