Information security for small enterprises and business owners

Anyone know how small enterprises (non-tech) are fulfiling their InfoSec work? Small non tech companies often cannot hire someone full time or for contract as they have a limited Security work which needs to be completed.
I'm guessing they hire consultants - does anyone know how to find consultants?

(Folks in tech companies will probably figure out how to do Security even if they don't have an expert in the team)

    Most IT consulting business already incorporated basic security packages and have been pushing for clients to adapt into the new norm.
    If you do have a good team and don’t mind managing a side biz, I wouldn’t say that would be a bad move.
    A localized marketing would work okay for small to mid-size businesses but sales team may be needed.

    I would search for a ‘managed service provider’ in your area. Most of them provide consulting services for all kinds of IT needs.

      I checked Upwork/similar marketplaces but didn't find a ton of options. Do you think it makes sense to have a marketplace specifically for information security consulting?

    MSSP, MSP, MDR. A marketplace would never work because the major players are already established.

    Everyone knows if you want the best MDR you look to Mandiant. ;)
