MSPs who want to supply managed security services should ensure that their own cybersecurity strategies are successfully implemented when working with clients. Having a handle on your own digital environment and successfully mitigating potential threats will help you better protect your customers from malicious actors attempting to access their networks through your own infrastructure.
MSPs should standardize internal best practices for cybersecurity to achieve this. Keeping patches up to date, for example, and making sure your software and hardware is up to date is a must – as is investing in comprehensive endpoint protection. Additionally, you should make an effort to train your employees against phishing schemes and social engineering attacks that lure them in with seemingly innocuous links. Finally, it’s important to prioritize credential management for both you and your customers.
Taking the necessary precautions to keep your own digital environment secure and investing in the tools needed to manage credentials and passwords can reduce the likelihood that cybercriminals will successfully penetrate your network or that of your customers.
