But what about the SMB? How to build a cyber security strategy for SMB


Andrew Johnson, Managing Director


Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Annual Cyber Threat Report for FY2021-2022 shows the average cost per cybercrime report is a staggering $39,000+ for small business and $88,000+ for medium business.

Small to medium businesses (SMB) are least prepared for cyber threats and least likely to recover from such detrimental losses.

The issues plaguing SMB business are different to larger corporates and enterprise, and their needs are unique. So too, should their approach to cybersecurity.

As managed service providers servicing these SMBs, what are you doing to help protect them?

Manage Protect will cover how to build a cyber security strategy for SMB, as well as what we can do to help partners better manage cybersecurity for their customers.

Door prize for members:  $100 gift card

An Introduction to Microsoft Sentinel

Graeme Pascoe, Director, Prima Technologies


As you know, cyber security threats are becoming more sophisticated and frequent, and the impact of a breach can be devastating for any business. MSPs and IT service providers are expected to provide comprehensive and reliable protection for their clients, but this can be challenging with limited resources and budget.

How does the small MSP monitor and respond to the vast amount of data generated across a business infrastructure?

The answer may be easier than you think. What if the solution was readily available and could be set up and run for peanuts?

Microsoft Sentinel is a game changer. It is a scalable, flexible, and intelligent SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) that leverages the power of the cloud and artificial intelligence to collect, analyse and respond to security events across your clients' infrastructure.
