Security should have a Front-row Seat at the Outsourcing Table

I recently read an interesting Horses for Sources (HfS) article titled “It’s a miracle we’re yet to see any BPO/ITO security disasters.” It is indeed ironic that not much importance is given to security as part of the outsourcing process. There are enough constraints for CSOs to implement the latest security technologies to protect their organization from various security threats. When an organization makes a decision to outsource some of its work, business leaders usually either forget the necessity to involve the CSO or they pull them in much later in the game when there is a disaster just around the corner. But the bottom-line is that security should have a front-row seat at the outsourcing table.
