Deny by Default
Danny Jenkins, CEO at ThreatLocker joins Ryan to discuss taking a Zero Trust approach to cybersecurity. Danny explains, ‘When deploying cybersecurity, more, doesn’t always mean better’. ‘Operate in the world of controls when securing your clients’. Great conversation touching on recent attacks and how they could have been avoided to having tough or not so tough customer conversations.
The Value of Collaboration
All too often we see IT Service Providers who insist on operating in a vacuum, out of fear, their competitors will learn their strengths and weaknesses to only use against them. However, we also see many who are engaged with peers and vendors, sharing information, providing feedback and keeping themselves at the forefront of industry knowledge and solutions.
Standing the Workforce Back Up
Michael Crean, CEO at Solutions Granted MSSP, talks with Brian about the return to the office and the challenges IT Providers are facing with the different customer requirements as we come out of this pandemic. Michael tells us, ‘Don’t forget about the fundamentals to chase a new product or service. Your stack is only as good as the foundation its sitting on.’
Wes Spencer, VP External CISO Product Management at Perch Security a Connectwise Solution sits down with Brian to discuss the evolution of the bad guys since 2018 when they first discovered MSPs. What Wes refers to as ‘Buffalo Jumping’ and how they are leveraging this as their attack vector. He clarifies the focus on Ransomware when really it should be on the breach itself.
Travis Ray, Director of Channel Sales with High Wire Networks talks with Brian about the challenges of patching during a pandemic while its proving to be even more important than ever. The evolution of cyber attacks over the past year has clearly showed us that these attacks aren’t going anywhere and will only continue to escalate and evolve so we better ensure that we have strategies in place for our businesses and our customers.
