ConnectWise has announced the MSP+ Cybersecurity Framework and IT Nation Secure security offerings to help MSPs sell and deliver cybersecurity services, according to a prepared statement. The news comes during this week's ConnectWise IT Nation Explore virtual conference.
The MSP+ Cybersecurity Framework consists of MSP-specific guidance from various cybersecurity frameworks, including:
- National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)
- CIS 20
- UK Cyber Essentials
- Australia's Essential Eight
IT Nation Secure includes educational training and assets to help MSPs produce, implement and run security practices within their businesses, ConnectWise noted. It offers advice and best practices to help MSPs educate their customers about cybersecurity.
The MSP+ Cybersecurity Framework and IT Nation Secure are now available. Furthermore, ConnectWise will host an IT Nation Secure training event in November to help MSPs explore ways to reduce risk, grow their businesses and streamline cybersecurity service delivery.
