MSP Legal Concerns!

You'll doubtless remember the worrying SolarWinds Hack a few months ago. How do MSPs protect themselves and their clients - legally speaking - when they get hacked? (especially if/when it's via the very tools that MSPs are using to help the clients!?!)

In a couple of weeks (Wednesday 8th December at 11.00 a.m.), I'll be interviewing a leading London law firm that specialises in helping MSPs to ensure that they (and their clients) as as bullet-proof as possible, from a legal standpoint.

Feel free to ask questions and here's an idea of the topics I'll be covering  ...

  • Does it matter (in terms of GDPR 'post-Brexit') where client's data is hosted or where the software is platformed?
    (e.g. Solarwinds)
  • What Contracts should MSPs have in place?
  • What are the minimum protections for due-diligence that MSPs need?
  • Legal Horror Stories ...
  • Which Questions Would/Should you ask when engaging an MSP Lawyer?
  • What damages are limited to / transferrable to (MSPs' or clients') staff that have left?
  • What if the breach/accident was due to incumbent software - Who gets sued?
  • What are some of the issues that MSP owners don't think about in relation to Staff, Suppliers, Customers, Competitors?
  • What are standard operating contracts people can use - and how much do they cost?
  • Is there a standard 'checklist' that MSPs should go through to ensure they're compliant?

... plus any other legal questions you want me to ask (either before or during this MSP meetup).

As always, this MSP Meetup is free-of-charge and free-of-BS and Hyperbole.
