3 Game Changing Problems in Security: Top Issues for MSPs

A Webcast from the Editors of Redmond Channel Partner

Date: Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 11am PT / 2pm ET

Guest Presenter: Ian Thornton-Trump, MSP security expert, a.k.a. @phat_hobbit

Join Redmond Channel Partner Editor Scott Bekker for a candid conversation with Ian Thornton-Trump, an expert on security issues for managed service providers.

Are we learning from the cyber security mistakes of the past or are we destined to do the same thing over again? Are defenders overwhelmed, undertrained and demoralized? Can we ever get to an even playing field, or do the rules of the cyber security game change faster than the players can adapt?

We'll cover three big, thorny, developing challenges for MSPs, IT pros and security vendors.

Come away from this session with a game plan for:

  • How WPA2 KRACK in the short term and quantum computing in the medium term may require MSPs to think differently about current encryption methods,
  • Dealing with botnets and distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS),
  • Coping with the "democratization" (a.k.a. leaking and widespread bad-actor use) of sophisticated state-level cyberweapons.
