The Massive MSP Cybersecurity Opportunity

Special Educational Programming to Help MSPs Cash In – Admission Included with Any MSP EXPO registration plan


The onslaught of hacks and ransomware attacks on data centers and cloud providers, coupled with increased regulation from the EU and U.S., such as GDPR, the New York Shield Act, and the California Consumer Privacy Act, means companies need to shore up their cybersecurity postures or risk being put out of business.

Two of the biggest IT budget items going into the next decade are cybersecurity and regulation.

In addition, the U.S. has millions of job openings for skilled cybersecurity staff and there is a major talent shortage.

The only solution is for qualified MSPs and MSSPs to do this cybersecurity work.

MSPs can serve a vital need helping companies with security-related initiatives:

  • Selecting the right vendors and partners
  • Developing a security plan for their clients and their own networks
  • Conducting pen testing
  • BCDR
  • Managing patch management
This is the largest growth area MSPs have ever had. The best part is, you will make your money protecting customers from the bad guys. There is no better or nobler opportunity than that.

Come to the MSSP theatre and hear from the vendors who you should consider as allies in helping to keep your customers secure.
