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: "The New Mindset & Business Shift MSPs Need to Embrace"

The new mindset that businesses need to shift now and how their businesses may change forever. As we move forward with our new reality there are number of opportunities we have in front of us. Most businesses big and small were not ready to live 100% in disaster mode 100% of the time.  Now is the time to rebuild your offering and ride the new wave of IT needs.

Session Topic: “Going Vertical in Municipal Gov’t and Law Enforcement is Not a Bidding War”
