As we break the myths of about cybersecurity, we look to challenge the default thought that business owners have about the importance of not only a solid security plan, but also systems to protect you in the event of a breach.
FACT #2 – An MSP offers great Security to Small Business – many small medium businesses (SMBs) think managed IT services providers (MSPs) are too expensive. But what will it cost if you get hit by a cyberattack?
In today’s age of information, SMBs are at high risk of a cyberattack when they do not take cybersecurity seriously. So, what is the answer? Expensive full-time IT staff or an MSP (Managed Services Provider)? SMBs may not have the resources or level of work for full-time IT staff so an MSP solves the problem.
Opportunity for SMB and MSP partnerships
Recently VansonBourne published its survey results in Underserved and Unprepared: The State of SMB Cyber Security in 2019. More than half the organisations responding said cybersecurity is a top priority over the next 2 years and plan to better protect their businesses.
Now is a good time for SMBs to consider partnering with an MSP. An MSP educates you about the types of threats and what protection your business needs. They will also make it clear that cybersecurity risk management is a shared responsibility. There is no solution that guarantees protection from a cyberattack. This should be clearly explained and defined in service-level agreements right from the start because businesses will move provider if they are not happy with an MSP.
A huge 92% of survey respondents would not hesitate to move to another MSP “if they offered the right” solution. What is the right solution? This is open to interpretation by individual businesses. It has never been more important for MSPs to offer a full range of services to demonstrate they have the right IT and cybersecurity solutions.
