Cybersecurity and Compliance - How an MSP Can Help

1 Minute Read

Cybersecurity services encompass a wide range of service types dedicated to your business. Many service types fall under the umbrella of cybersecurity services including firewalls, network monitoring, layered networks, antivirus, and more. We suggest outsourcing this to a managed service provider (MSP) who will bring with them a greater depth of experience.


Security and Compliance Auditing Services

When it comes to the security and compliance auditing of your business’s IT, it’s not enough to just make an assessment of your hardware and software. To do a holistic security and compliance audit effectively, have a third party come in. You can use an MSP, an individual auditor, or an auditing team. 


Audits necessary for this assessment include (but aren’t limited to): 

● Email Policies

● Mobile Device Policies

● Wi-Fi Policies

●  Network Equipment

●  Data Access and Backup

●  Vulnerability Scanning

●  Phishing Tests

●  Application Policies

●  File Server Policies

●  Workstation Policies

●  Firewall Policies 

Whoever you choose to oversee your IT audits should be competent in auditing compliance for HIPPA, GDPR, SOX, PCI DSS, and Sarbanes-Oxley.


Antivirus Protection Services 

Given the ever-increasing sophistication of malware, quality antivirus protection services are crucial to a business and should not be ignored. These services are generally more common in the IT industry and come built into many devices. As you can see, more goes into the complex world of business IT services than the common business owner understands. In order to get the full capabilities and efficiency needed for your company to succeed, consider a managed service provider.
