Q: Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about a group of Chinese hackers called APT10 and how they target MSPs. My MSP work with customers in highly regulated industries, so we have a lot of sensitive data to protect. What should I do if my MSP gets hacked?
Data breaches can certainly be alarming, and many other MSPs have the same fear— especially when they’re helping small businesses protect highly sensitive information. However, implementing best practices and looking for potential vulnerabilities can help protect your SMB customers —and your MSP — from getting breached.
To help you mitigate the risks and protect your MSP, we spoke to Chris Johnson, the director of business development and strategy at Wheelhouse IT. He has been working hands on with managed IT in the healthcare field since 2008, and he has worked in regulated industries in the IT field for 20 years. Chris shared his insight on both mitigation tactics and steps you need to take if your MSP is compromised.
