MSP 501: Leadership in Cybersecurity

Date: Oct 19, 2023

Duration: 1 Hr

Growing your cybersecurity practice can be a difficult and confusing process for channel partners, made all the more daunting by the ever-evolving threat landscape. Choosing among zero trust, XDR, cloud security, IoT security or API security  — just to mention a few — can be overwhelming. MSPs and all security-focused partners must embrace more layered and complex solutions to keep their customers’ businesses and data safe.  One customer breach can have devastating consequences. Having the right set of solutions can give an MSP a competitive advantage and help grow their business. On the other hand, the lack of a sound security strategy can cost them business. That’s why more cybersecurity automation, security services and the addition of a SOC — outsourced or internal — have become an important goal for many MSPs. In this webinar, channel partners will hear from leading security partners who will share best practices to help them sort through it all. 


Key takeaways include: 

  • Helping customers make the correct security investments amid economic uncertainty 

  • How to differentiate your security practice 

  • When to partner with a specialist versus going it alone 

  • How to do more with less amid the ongoing talent shortage

  • Making the most of AI and automation to help your business and customers stay safe
