Testimonial

Patrick Burgess, Technical Director, Nutbourne Ltd.

The MSP+ course has been a breath of fresh air in a complex and crowded cybersecurity marketplace. Monthly coaching from respected industry experts in a collaborative and non-sales environment has been incredibly beneficial to both myself and the company. Over the first three months we have started to confirm the cybersecurity elements we are already doing well and fill in the gaps where we have either missed the mark or just weren’t aware. Being in a group of peers also helps us gauge where we sit in the market, learning from MSPs who my be doing it better or differently, and helping those who haven’t quite got there yet. Continual improvement is needed to secure ourselves, our clients, and keep up with threats. The value of this course in this climate is easy to justify and see.
