In this important episode, host MJ Shoer, executive director of the CompTIA ISAO, talks with Jay Tipton, CEO of Technology Specialists, about what it’s like to bear the brunt of a cyber attack on your MSP business. From the realization that it’s happening to communicating the news to clients, to updating your own business processes, Jay talks about his own harrowing experience of surviving an attack. Overcoming the technical challenges is just the beginning and having the right plan—and the right help—is critical to recovery for managed service providers.
