Small business and Managed Service Provider special!

  • Do small businesses face the same cyber threats as large organisations?
  • Are your security solutions 100% effective? And how do you pick a good one?
  • Where are the opportunities for MSPs to add value and make more money?

In June 2022*, we set up a panel of security experts to help and advise companies selling managed security services. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) need to choose a set of security solutions that they can use or possibly resell to their small business clients, known as SMBs.

The clients face the same cyber threats as large organisations, but they’re far less equipped to handle them.

We answer all of these questions and more with special guests Martin Lee from Cisco, Chad Skipper from VMware, and Luis Corrons from Avast.

Enterprises are asking themselves, and SE Labs, these questions all the time. The good news is, we can help provide an answer.

Outdated law firm tech creates tension with clients

Legal firms vs. data security: How to solve the tension between lawyers, their IT teams, clients and data security

outdated law firm tech

Traditional ways of working in the legal world clash with modern technology and tech-savvy clients. Outdated law firm tech might be safe, but it makes customers unhappy.

There is a tension between lawyers, their IT teams and their clients. Law firms don’t like to recognise this, at least publicly. But there is a clash between “the way things are done”, customer service and the convenience provided by modern technology.

Securing a business from scratch

Securing a business

Building and launching a start-up company is a challenge in itself. Securing it when it is new, young and vulnerable is something else. It’s very necessary but also hard if you don’t know what you’re doing. And can you afford a consultant in the early days?

If your new business is IT-based and focused on security then you’re in a stronger position than, say, an organic make-up business or an ethical coffee brand.
