Among the due diligence a company should perform when signing with a managed detection and response (MDR) provider, one item that may not be top of mind is who owns custom content developed during the service.

This scope-of-coverage aspect can get lost as MDR providers promise to onboard clients in ever-tightening timeframes, including self-service onboarding.
