Abstract

Organizations that are considering managed security services (MSS) vendors undertake a variety of selection process to make a more informed decision regarding the selection of an MSS provider. This study is a work-in-progress that seeks to examine how some recent projects at medium to large organizations undertake these projects.

The project intends to:

1) identify and document strategies and criteria for information technology outsourcing from academic and practice literature,

2) consider how those strategies and criteria may be adapted for use in managed security services (MSS) provider selection, and then

3) validate the strategies and criteria for MSS vendor selection from the prior and current practices of organizations engaged in IT outsourcing.

The early work on this effort to date includes:

1) identify and document strategies for information technology outsourcing from academic and practice literature,

2) consider how those strategies may be adapted for use in managed security services (MSS) provider selection, and then

3) validate the strategies and criteria for MSS vendor selection from the prior and current practices of organizations engaged in IT outsourcing.
