We hear daily of new attacks and the rapidly evolving threat landscape facing IT Service Providers and the SMB. Our feedback from the IT Channel is ‘Yes we are aware of the threats, but now what? What do we do and how do we effectively lock down ourselves and our clients?’

Don’t miss this 30min Podcast Brian has with Neal Bradbury, Sr. Director of Business Development with Barracuda MSP. Neal talks about the importance of staying educated and keeping ahead of the threat landscape or you will quickly fall behind. The threats are evolving so fast that as IT Service Providers we need to rely on all resources available to us starting with leveraging our Vendors and the support and tools they offer.

Barracuda MSP recently released their Spear Phishing Top Threat and Trends Report where it states 93% of breaches start with an email attack.

These attacks can be broken into 3 categories:
1. Brand Impersonation
2. Blackmail
3. Business Email Compromise

Neal gives a step by step checklist to effectively build out a layered and advanced security defense against these threats.

Kenny Bania from Seinfeld came to mind in a few spots during this podcast…’Gold Jerry…Gold!’.
