The only constant in the cybersecurity world is that it is always changing. That’s why businesses of all sizes need to focus on staying agile and proactive about their defence posture to protect their operations and data.
In a recent joint security advisory released by the Five Eyes, an alliance of cyber authorities representing the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand, managed services providers (MSPs) were called upon to strengthen their cybersecurity defences and prepare for the observed uptick in malicious threats targeting their businesses and customers specifically. MSPs, like any organisation, are not immune.
That is why any business, MSP or not, should be safeguarding their network(s), allowing them to focus on serving their customer’s needs. Companies that incorporate a thorough security strategy and invest in a well-thought-out security stack have a real competitive edge over companies that operate under vulnerable circumstances. With this checklist, take the target off your back, level up your security posture, and stay out of the crosshairs of hackers.
