Al Alper, CEO at CyberGuard 360 takes a 10,000 foot view with Ryan and a look at the mindset of our customers and regulators. As Al states, ‘They don’t want War and Peace…just tell them what they want and need to know in plain English’. Visibility – Documentation – Audit Trail…The CyberGuard 360 roadmap to winning new business at incredible margins!
Controls vs. Redundancy
Danny Jenkins, CEO at ThreatLocker breaks down security stacks with Ryan. Controls, Detection and Training being the three main pillars. Where some go heavy with multiple layers of detection, controls can often time get over looked. Danny gives us a scenario where hackers can actually use a compromised customer environment as recon against you the MSP to get around detection tools, where controls like Zero Trust and MFA can prevent these attacks and ultimate breach.
Protecting You Against You
Matt Scully, Channel Chief with Mailprotector goes beyond with Ryan to discuss email extortion and bad guys exploiting the psychographics of human behaviour. How private is electronic communication? From trade secrets to personal matters we all have communications that we don’t want in the public realm…As Matt says ‘Protecting you against you’ is a perfect way to describe cybersecurity leading into 2022.
Pulling Back the Curtain
Ryan sits down with Huntress, Sr. Security Researcher, John Hammond to unpack the event and the benefit to you the IT Service Provider. Hands on training and demos that really illustrate the anatomy of a hack and the mindset of cyber criminals. A clear understanding of the threats and offense coming at you, best prepares you to defend and shore up your stack and security offerings.
Ryan and Vince Crisler, Founder and CEO at Dark Cubed have a great re-cap discussion of the IoTSSA Cybersecurity Expo in Charlotte late last month. From getting started to evolving your current security stack, no matter your cybersecurity maturity level. Vince lays out that different customers have different needs and you need to deploy solutions that best fit a specific client or situation. Too often the fundamentals are overlooked when deploying cybersecurity and managing client risk.
The Cybersecurity Story
Communicating the threat landscape to the SMB has always been a challenge and customers simply don’t believe, it can and will happen to them. Ryan talks with Curricula, Founder and CEO, Nick Santora about how they are using the power of story telling to penetrate and educate the single largest threat to organizations…the users themselves.
