MAX and Security

A very well-written blog post by Mimic Media's Ian Trump about providing liability protection for your clients by leveraging your RMM tool.

GFI Max, Due Diligence and Liability Concerns

The term "legal liability resulting from a data breach" is a significant phrase that is used .... The phrase brings to mind several questions: What is liability and how could it result from a data breech? How is liability determined and what are the consequences for being found liable. The idea of liability and IT systems seems like a strange combination of ideas.
 Something every MSP (or IT consulting in general) really should be thinking about, and Ian shows it's easier to compensate for than most think.
