Advice on Protecting company w/o a Security staff
I would say the following:
  • Outsource the security aspects to a third-party organization who has a strong track record
  • Place most of the solutions in the cloud where the applications are managed and maintained in the cloud using SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), similar to O365 and Google Apps
  • Implement an automated solution where ML (Machine Learning) comes into play. Watson, Sophos Intercept X and Extremenetwork Netsight Atlas can help where they can make decisions on their own, there may need to be some (very little intervention) but it can be done (automate, automate, automate).
  • Optional - take the internal employees and make them weaponized security fellows, bring in security consultants until they are up to par. I have even talked about bringing in White-Hat Hackers (i.e. Kevin Mitnik) to help address some of your short-comings.
