Silva: "Best Market For Security Consulting Services That I Have Seen In Years"

Michael Silva stated:

Best market for security consulting services that I have seen in years

We asked to him elaborate on what drivers he sees behind this and he noted:

In years past, major news events (Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11, workplace shootings, etc.) tended to drive the demand for consulting. Unfortunately, events like this seem commonplace these days so does not have the same impact.

This time around, it seems to be more about the clients general dissatisfaction with their level of security despite having spent tons of money on technology and manpower.

Also, for whatever reason, clients who seemed to have trouble coming up with money for consulting now have it available.

So what do you think? Is this a general trend or?
