We all know that security is hard… for an MSP, it’s even more difficult.
In addition to balancing the everyday security risks that every business faces, MSP’s also have to focus on their customers’ networks. A lot of times, the security of customer networks take precedence for service providers... and in-house security falls short.
Ransomware attacks on MSP organizations reached an all-time high at the beginning of 2020. While ransomware is not the only form of attack targeting MSPs, it is a newsworthy one.
The truth is, the bad guys have caught on to the vendor/service provider/client structure and the vulnerabilities within it. They've begun to count on unpatched vendor and MSP networks as the weak link in a supply chain, using it to get to an organization's many customer networks. We're now seeing this weak link exploited at an unprecedented rate, leaving many MSPs responsible for breaches of their customers' data.
This risk is a new topic in the news cycle, but the Infogressive security experts have been aware of it and warning MSP partners for years. Knowing the severity of this vulnerability, our team consulted with one of our MSP partners and conducted a full penetration test on their network with permission. The results were shocking, and thus the "Anatomy of an MSP" or "MSP vs Hacker" roadshow presentation was born.
This is a message to all MSP’s: it’s time to take security off the back burner.
When your network is at risk, your customers’ risk is doubled.
Anatomy of an MSP: Breaking & Entering generated buzz in the summer of 2018 after it was initially presented at the IOTSSA Cybersecurity Roadshow in Illinois. Now, you can hear it for yourself.
We’re excited to share the Penetration Test Demo in video form for the first time since its live debut. In this video, Security Engineer Derrick Masters dives in to show MSP’s what’s really at stake. Check out the one Penetration Test you’ll never forget:
