What did that say about cybercriminal understanding of the average MSP? That MSP is just like every other small business organization out there — a small victim with little capacity to pay out for ransomware recovery. This mantra began to change late last year as MSPs began to be leveraged as the initial infection vector of their larger clients. The Texas ransomware attacks were the first highly publicized examples that served as the catalyst, but certainly weren't the last.

Chris Loehr — executive vice president of Solis Security, an incident response firm — has personally dealt with many of these MSP breaches. Speaking of GandCrab, Loehr says, "They certainly hit some MSPs in 2018, but the ransoms were relatively small: $10,000 to $25,000. In 2019, MSPs became more of a target, with increasing ransom demands and the threat actors leveraging MSP tools with greater efficiency to affect clients. GandCrab never required the MSP to pay up. It wasn't until GandCrab evolved into Sodinokibi in mid-2019 threat actors began to say: 'We ONLY want the MSP to pay. You can pay for ALL the customers or you get NOTHING at all.'"
Have you ever needed to rent office space for your business? You get with a broker to find the space that you believe is right for you and pay for monthly fees to use the space. With IT infrastructure management, it’s the same idea. You are working with your MSP so that they can provide you with the tools you need to keep your IT systems safe and secure.

Typically when partnering with a MSP, that organization will offer you a roadmap; this might be a one, three, or five year plan depending on your needs. This roadmap will have certain IT issues that may come up over time written into it, whether they be small issues or larger ones. That way there are no surprise expenses. With an individual IT employee, this luxury isn’t there. For instance you may at some point need to replace an entire server, which is a huge expense for your company. With a MSP, your roadmap will have a solution for this built into it. This is going to eliminate a lot of stress, headaches, and budget stretching on your part. All while saving you from the downtime that prevents you from running your business effectively, efficiently, and productively.

Now more than ever, leading MSPs are re-engineering their cybersecurity offerings. "The new normal has begun, and the line in the sand of minimum cybersecurity requirements have changed for the SMB," says Andrew Morgan, host of the CyberCall, a free online community of 2,000 security-focused MSPs. "We're leading the charge for all MSPs, helping them understand that what they were doing for security in the past is no longer sufficient. And explaining this to their clients is a core competency that all MSPs must have in order to survive."

For years, cybersecurity has largely been an enterprise issue. Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) were often the targets of opportunistic attacks, but both damages and frequency were low enough for them to not cause concern for business owners. While it can be argued that cybercriminals were simply going after larger and more lucrative targets, they also misunderstood how the SMB sector itself could be a valuable target.
