If you are an MSP, chances are you protect, monitor, and manage client data all the time. But, the rules around data have changed significantly. Previously used tools, tactics, and rules are no longer applicable as data theft crimes and risk increase.

Guy Bavly, CEO of Actifile, enters the MSP Zone to discuss these issues.

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are increasingly vital in today’s digital landscape, where data is both a valuable asset and a potential liability. Actifile, led by CEO Guy Bavly, is a cybersecurity company that specializes in protecting sensitive data protection through innovative solutions. The role of MSPs has evolved to not only manage and monitor data but also to ensure its security and compliance with changing regulations. Data protection is no longer just about preventing unauthorized access; it involves a comprehensive approach that includes data classification, risk assessment, and understanding the value of the data held.

Data classification and categorization are essential for understanding what data you have and how it should be protected. This process helps in identifying the sensitivity of different data types and applying appropriate security measures. Meanwhile, data risk assessment is a systematic approach to identify, evaluate, and address risks associated with data management, ensuring that the data’s integrity, confidentiality, and availability are maintained.

The underappreciation of data can lead to inadequate protection measures. It’s crucial for MSPs to recognize the true value of their clients’ data and implement robust security strategies accordingly. As guardians of data, MSPs must stay ahead of the curve, adapting to new threats and leveraging advanced technologies to safeguard client data. Their role extends beyond technical measures; it encompasses educating clients about the importance of data protection and the potential consequences of data breaches.

The MSP’s role in data protection and security is multifaceted and ever-evolving. It requires a deep understanding of the data lifecycle, proactive risk management, and a commitment to continuous improvement in security practices.
