Session Topic: The Ultimate MSP ‘Gut Check List’ for Internal Security

Corey Kirkendoll, CEO of 5K Technical Services, has been aggregating best practices from within the ASCII and vendor community into a definitive guide to help MSPs lock down their environments from would be attacks. Corey will be presenting this information and highlighting the top things most MSPs are not doing that are leaving them vulnerable to being breached. This has been a collaborative effort for our industry as we present the findings to all attendees.

Session Topic: The MSP's Survival Guide to Co-Managed IT Services

Can Managed Service Providers (MSPs) work with internal IT departments? Historically the answer has been “no way.” But it can be done without recreating your traditional MSP offerings.

An MSP can directly market to organizations having IT departments. And create a unique selling proposition in an industry where many MSPs risk becoming a commodity.By creating a mutually supportive relationship between the Internal IT employees and your MSP organization, both parties benefit, building a strong relationship. And you can do this without reinventing your existing MSP practice, by adapting your existing MSP organization to concurrently offer CoMITs and traditional MSP services.

Session Topic: "Deeper Look, is it Worth IT? Cyber Security Cert for Canadian MSPs"

Victor Beitner CISSP, CEO of Cyber Security Canada focuses on the Cyber Security needs of small and med sized businesses. The philosophy has been to utilize monitoring endpoints and firewalls for reporting malicious activities that are normally missed by traditional methods. Review and creation of security assessments and incident response plans is just part of what we do. Cyber Security Canada offers consultation to align with different Cyber Security Standards . Cyber Security Canada became a Certification Body for the “Cyber Essentials" program in Canada and is now a recognized certification body for the new Canadian “CyberSecure Canada” program. The focus is to promote security and resilience from Cyber threats. Victor will present and outline the basics which opens the door for MSP’s to capitalize on the program.
