If you think all your business's cybersecurity needs are covered by your managed services provider, think again.


Managed Services provide a variety of benefits to businesses that lower overall IT costs and provide some cybersecurity benefits.

When working with a managed services provider (MSP), it's critical to understand what cybersecurity services will and will not be provided under your MSP agreement. 

We created a checklist to guide discussions with your MSP and determine whether it might be time to meet with a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP).

Managed Services offer a plethora of advantages to businesses, not only reducing overall IT costs but also offering cybersecurity benefits. However, when engaging with a managed services provider (MSP), it's imperative to have clarity on the cybersecurity services included in your MSP agreement. Understanding the scope of cybersecurity services provided by your MSP ensures alignment with your organization's security needs and regulatory requirements.

To facilitate these discussions and assess the adequacy of your cybersecurity measures, we've developed a comprehensive checklist. This tool can guide conversations with your MSP and help ascertain whether additional security measures, possibly through a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), are warranted to bolster your organization's cybersecurity posture.
