IT professionals would rather outsource data compliance to MSPs

A recent survey found that almost half of IT specialists do not know how to manage compliance data and would rather outsource the task to managed service providers than handle it internally.

The phrase “work smarter, not harder” is becoming easier to comply with as technology and cloud-based platforms help to simplify our day-to-day roles. Even people in the IT industry would rather outsource complex tasks that are more cost-effective to handle externally than within their own company.

A recent Six Degrees Group study surveyed IT professionals and found that 43 percent of individuals in IT roles do not have a clear understanding of how to manage compliance legislation data. Given the complexity of an IT professional’s job, one would think that they would be knowledgeable in that area; however, 52 percent of IT specialists admitted they would rather utilize a managed service provider (MSP) to manage data compliance than to do so internally.
