Cost Savings Estimate - PCI DSS Bundle #1
When you look at the costs associated with either (1) hiring an external consultant to write cybersecurity documentation for you or (2) tasking your internal staff to write it, the cost comparisons paint a clear picture that buying from ComplianceForge is the logical option. Compared to hiring a consultant, you can save months of wait time and tens of thousands of dollars. Whereas, compared to writing your own documentation, you can potentially save hundreds of work hours and the associated cost of lost productivity. Purchasing this bundle from ComplianceForge offers these fundamental advantages when compared to the other options for obtaining quality cybersecurity documentation:
- For your internal staff to generate comparable documentation, it would take them an estimated 920 internal staff work hours, which equates to a cost of approximately $69,000 in staff-related expenses. This is about 10-15 months of development time where your staff would be diverted from other work.
- If you hire a consultant to generate this documentation, it would take them an estimated 570 contractor work hours, which equates to a cost of approximately $171,000. This is about 6-9 months of development time for a contractor to provide you with the deliverable.
- This bundle is approximately 6% of the cost for a consultant or 14% of the cost of your internal staff to generate equivalent documentation.
- We process most orders the same business day so you can potentially start working with the documentation the same day you place your order.
