In the fast-paced world of cyber security, staying ahead of evolving threats is paramount for businesses aiming to safeguard their valuable assets and data. Traditionally, organisations have relied on the CapEx (Capital Expenditure) model for building and managing their security programs. However, the ever-changing cyber landscape demands a more agile and cost-effective approach. This is where Sekuro’s Cyber Resilience Program (CRP) steps in with its innovative OpEx (Operating Expense) model.
CapEx (Capital Expenditure)
- Significant initial financial commitment
- Considerable value, influence, and risk
- Has the potential to detrimentally affect the business if invested imprudently, with potential challenges to rectify
OpEx (Operating Expense)
- Often involves lower front-up cost
- Involves regular, foreseeable, and adaptable expenditures
- Realises faster ROI
- Integral to everyday operational overhead
- Poses a milder impact on the business if unsuitable and are more readily reversible.
Sekuro’s CRP is a highly customisable, subscription-based, and co-managed cyber security service. It offers a transformative transition from the CapEx model to the OpEx model for managing security programs. With cost-effectiveness, scalability, access to expert advice, and reduced management costs, the OpEx over CRP model enables businesses to achieve cybersecurity excellence without being bound by traditional investments. By focusing on core business functions and receiving ongoing support and adaptability, organisations can take advantage of CRP and navigate the dynamic cybersecurity landscape with confidence.
Here are the 8 key benefits of CRP’s OpEx model:
1. Cost Efficiency and Predictability
The CRP model offers predictable, ongoing monthly expenses, making budgeting more straightforward and providing financial flexibility.
2. Scalability for Growing Businesses
As businesses grow or experience fluctuations in cyber security needs, the CRP model proves to be beneficial. CRP’s approach enables seamless scalability, allowing organisations to tailor their security investment to meet current needs without being tied to a fixed CapEx investment.
3. Reduced Administrative Overhead
Running a CapEx cyber security program requires significant administrative effort to monitor and maintain. CRP’s model shifts the burden of maintenance and updates to us, freeing your team to focus on strategic cyber security initiatives and BAU activities.
4. Enhanced Focus on Core Business
Cyber security, while essential, is only one aspect of running a successful business. By adopting the CRP model, organisations can prioritise their critical business functions, leaving the complexity of managing cybersecurity to dedicated professionals.
5. Continuous Support and Adaptability
In the CapEx model, organisations may face challenges when upgrading or adapting to new cyber security requirements due to the limitation of their initial investment. With CRP’s model, companies benefit from ongoing support, allowing them to quickly adapt to new threats and emerging technologies.
6. Realising Faster ROI
The CRP model allows companies to benefit from a faster return on investment (ROI). With predictable and manageable monthly costs, organisations can quickly begin to see the value of their cybersecurity investment without waiting for traditional CapEx payback periods.
7. Emphasis on Ongoing Security Measures
Information security is an infinite game that requires continuous monitoring, updates, and maintenance. Budgets for regular security audits, vulnerability assessments, employee training among other security activities are often covered under OpEx.
8. Cloud and SaaS Adoption
With the increased adoption of cloud services and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, organisations have shifted away from large upfront investments (which would be categorised as CapEx) to pay-as-you-go models, usually classified as OpEx.
