Question: How do you address concerns on security related to outsourcing?

Sid Adelman's Answer: The requirement for security is primarily a function of what needs to be secured. Identify the level of security required for your system and then ask the outsourcers what they would do to secure the system and ask them to estimate the cost and effort of the additional security. As you ask the same questions of multiple potential outsource vendors, you will hear new and different approaches and they will give you an education on the techniques as well as the cost and effort of securing your system.
