Do You Have Ransomware in Your MSP Agreements?

Do You Have Ransomware in Your MSP Agreements?

Ransomware is a problem for everyone. MSPs fight every day to keep their clients safe from ransomware, and yet, we must plan for the worst case scenario.

MSPs need to address ransomware with their clients, and one of the best places to do this is through the managed services agreement. This episode will help MSPs understand the best practices for including ransomware clauses within their agreements, as well as how to do this fairly so it protects both the client and the MSP.

Highlights:

  • What mention of ransomware should be in your agreements?
  • What changed before and after recent cyber attacks?
  • Third party ransomware scenarios
  • Exclusions from vendors
