There is no doubt that MSP’s are being increasingly targeted by cyber criminals. This article says that in America the FBI began warning US MSP’s of these attacks in October 2018.
The article also says that MSP’s have 2 options to protect themselves
- Build in house skills and resources
- partner with an MSSP
it also notes that finding an MSSP that they can trust is going to be a challenge.
