The incline of application-driven services and work from home adoption are all detail-oriented aspects of a strong digital transformation in technology over the last several years. And the rate of digital change is happening more rapidly- per Metcalfe’s law.
More employees work from home, and many of them refuse to come back to the office for a variety of reasons. As a result, cloud services and work from home and VPNs have become the new norm. We’ve also seen a heavy increase in cryptocurrency usage throughout the world.

What are Cyber Security Consulting Services?
Cyber Security Consulting Services are “Strategic Advisory Services” Surrounding Cyber security or Information Security Services. These Services can provide data security details to client businesses. Within a Cyber Security Consulting Service- Your Business would gain a detailed analysis of how effective current computer networks and systems are from hackers, malware, and other cyber threats. You’ll also get remediation advice and action-based details associated with those details.
Choosing the Right Cyber Security Consultant or Service Provider can be a Challenge.
So, you’re already looking for a Cyber Security Consultant, but who do you pick? If you’re looking for a Cyber Security Consulting Service- there are many providers, and a variety of different prices. If you’re not technically savvy, it might be a challenge to determine which one is the right choice for your use-case. Should you go with a more-developed company, or a cybersecurity consultant or independent service provider? The answer depends on a variety of factors.
Small Businesses have had These Key Issues with Cyber Security Service Providers, specifically regarding Cyber Security Consulting as well as Managed Cyber Security Services:
Over the years of Providing Cyber Security Services and Network Security Services for a variety of different clients- we’ve heard several complaints about previous providers. In many instances, it’s not the fault of the service providers in question.
Oftentimes, the client’s dissatisfaction is due to the nature of One-Man Service Shops, or Two-Person Tech Companies. Companies with this type of structure can’t deliver and scale an operationally mature service model unless-they have only several clients.
Two of the most common issues are pricing, and reliability:
- Reliability. It can be important to find a service provider that you can rely on, to build a relationship over time. Reason being -you may need this service provider to perform additional services later-on. The lower price services will usually show to be less-than-reliable for long term needs. Race is Different.
- Pricing. Many clients have complained about pesky hourly fees. Such as the computer consultant who will try to spend that extra 15-30 minutes onsite, just to charge an extra fee. Independent Contractors may charge reasonable hourly rates in some cases. When they rely on service-hours to make a living, their goal is to bill as many as possible.
In many instances, Cyber Security Consultants can be a Jack of All Tech Trades and Masters of None. You may end up with a Computer Technician who “identifies” as a Cybersecurity Consultant- or says that he can do cyber security service.. Is this person really a Cybersecurity Expert? PopQuiz is Different.
Introducing PopQuiz Managed Services- A Different Type of Cybersecurity Service Provider:
We’ve heard almost all of the complaints in the industry, and we’ve managed to grow our business by providing a solution to these common challenges. One-Man Companies have a limited-service delivery model. We have solved this.
Our platform-style approach to service delivery is unique because of the strategic interaction between our internal team and our service distribution network. We have an established internal core team of cyber experts- in different locations nationally.
Our internal Team of Experts Manages our current client network systems. This includes security monitoring and responding to alerting systems. They will interact with user-requests and dispatch service providers for equipment replacements, upgrades, or maintenance needs. They keep everything up and running securely and handle dispatching as well. Our internal team also runs background checks and industry certification checks for our service network.
Our extended Team of Technicians (Service Distribution Network) is our extra “feet on the ground” for client on-site services in a variety of locations throughout the country. These service providers are registered internally within our business platform, and our business enables them to operate and grow. We effectively manage this network by providing them value to grow in their own independent service model.
Enjoy the best of both worlds- reasonable pricing like you would have from an independent consultant, but the top-notch expertise and high level of service you would have from a larger scale cyber security organization. All of this while maintaining an effective degree of responsiveness for a white-glove style interaction.
