Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Depending on the breadth required, we have used SunGard Availability Services. There are smaller vendors for SME market as well that we’ve used on a case by case basis.

    There are many security consultancies in the market who offer this type of service. You need to be sure that you will be happy with the one you choose as you are going to be giving them access to everything you have warts and all. The cheapest will not necessarily be the best so you will have to carry out a vendor selection exercise. However, before you do sit down and document exactly what you want to achieve and the scope of the work involved. This will avoid misunderstandings later. A good staring point would be to speak to your network of security colleagues and create a list of potential partners from recommendation. That way you will be able to prove to your board that you have been diligent when you recommend spending what will be a significant sum.

    Joseph, I am not sure where you are located, or if that is relevant, but I have worked extensively with a company called Balanced Trust. All they do is regulatory compliance so this would be right up there alley. I hope this helps... Mike

    SecureWorks is an atlanta based company. I am with an association of financial institution infosec managers (CUISPA). Many of our members use SecureWorks and report favorably about their service. We've also heard good things about are Counterpane. I will comment that your request to meet GLBA is a broad comment. Any vendor will "theoretically" meet GLBA. GLBA is vague in its wording. You wont find a single MSSP that will say they do not satisfy GLBA. But, if you are in a regulated industry and concerned about compliance you may want to look at the specifics of other regulations that effect GLBA. If you are with a financial insitution, one of the big issues is 3rd party vendor due diligence (making sure all of your vendors are doing what they should to safeguard any data they have access to). Therefore pick a vendor that is well known and reputable. my 2 cents
