#CybersecurityTip: Being aware of your MSP's cybersecurity protocol is necessary to maintaining good security practice. Start with a risk assessment for your MSP's internal systems. Do you have answers for questions such as:
- How do you protect your data?
- How confidential is it?
- Are limits or permissions set for all levels?
- What is your password policy?
- How often do you change your passwords?
- Do you use multi-factor authentication?
There are many more questions you can ask to assess how secure your MSP is. A cybersecurity breach can be a terminal event for C-Suite executives that are not aware, presenting a huge risk to the targeted organization, it's revenues, and most of all, it's reputation.
It is proven that data breaches are an increasing threat with the number of U.S. data breach incidents in 2017 hitting a new record high of 1,579 breaches. Prevent this from happening to your MSP, keep cybersecurity in the forefront of your business.
