Security Breach Training Program

Breach Secure Now! Rolls Out a White Labeled Unlimited Clients IT Security Training Program for MSPs

MSPs can offer their clients security training for free, which opens the door to selling larger security solutions.

Morristown, NJ – September 08 – Breach Secure Now! has lowered the barriers to increased IT security sales for MSPs by introducing Unlimited Clients Employee Security Training that they can now offer their SMB (small and mid-sized business) clients for free or for a minimal fee. A YouTube video explains the program in detail.

MSPs typically offer anti-virus software and firewalls as part of an IT services package. But when they try to convince clients that they need greater protection to ward off ever increasing cyberattacks they’re often met with resistance. SMBs incorrectly believe they’re too small for cyber criminals to target.

Now MSPs can offer clients the Breach Secure Now! security training subscription under their own label and make it available through a secure MSP branded portal. They can bundle the training with the anti-virus protection, firewalls and security patch management services they already provide.

“MSPs have long struggled to talk to their clients about security,” said Art Gross, CEO of Breach Secure Now! “Now they can say, ‘I’m an MSP who worries about security and I’m worried about your security so I’m giving you this training for free.’

“Every MSP sells anti-virus software. But when 95 percent of data breaches are caused by human error, software alone isn’t enough protection. We are now providing employee security training at an affordable price that every one of their clients can use.”

The Unlimited Clients Security Training Subscription, which starts at less than $50 a month for MSPs, provides clients with invaluable lessons in recognizing and avoiding sophisticated hacking scams that even their most tech savvy employees can succumb to.

Employees who complete the 90-minute training course become more proficient in identifying phishing scams, protecting proprietary data stored on mobile devices and much more.

Through the training portal, clients will also discover the other services offered by Breach Secure Now!, including security risk assessments, PII (personal identifiable information) scanning, security policies and procedures, breach response services and $100,000 of cyber protection though an AIG insurance program. Clients who notice these services in the portal become better informed and therefore more receptive to discussing additional security solutions with their MSPs.

“Our training program is the MSP’s Trojan Horse,” Gross said. “Once inside the portal clients will naturally explore the other security services we offer. This paves the way for MSPs to have meaningful conversations about security and thereby sell additional services.”

The Unlimited Clients Security Training Subscription also has an attractive referral program. An MSP receives a $100 credit toward his own subscription for each colleague they refer who subsequently purchases the training subscription. The colleague, in turn, receives a five percent discount on their subscription. There is no limit to the number of colleagues an MSP can refer.

Adaptive Security Strategies Broached

Top-level CISOs Talk Switching to Adaptive Security Strategies

EC-Council Foundation’s Global CISO Forum continues to attract the top names of information security executives and has added a panel of high-level CISOs to discuss Adaptive Security Architecture: Visibility, Controls, and Response to Meet Today’s Threats, Violations, and Consumerization.

Atlanta, GA – August 11 – EC-Council Foundation’s premier executive event, the Global CISO Forum, has added an all-star panel to its agenda. The Global CISO Forum’s theme this year is Striking a Balance – Strong Fundamentals versus Next Generation Innovations. The agenda is broken out into two days – one for fundamentals and one for innovation. The panel session, titled Adaptive Security Architecture: Visibility, Controls, and Response to Meet Today’s Threats, Violations, and Consumerization; will take place on the innovation day as the panel participants examine processes and technology that support an adaptive strategy as the best way to manage risks and an ever-changing landscape of threats. The Global CISO Forum will take place in Atlanta, GA, October 16 and 17, 2014.

Panel participants include Chuck Deaton, Deputy CISO of Enterprise Information Protection at Humana; Ken Pfeil, CISO at Pioneer Investments; and Scott Gordon, CMO at ForeScout. The panel participants represent a wide variety of industry perspectives and goals when it comes to information security. Humana, for instance, is one of the nation’s largest publicly traded health and supplemental benefits companies and so Mr. Deaton will bring the experience of securing data in a healthcare environment. Representing the financial industry, Mr. Pfeil will bring a very different perspective on protecting organization and customer data as Pioneer Investments is a leading global investment manager. Steering the discussion will be Scott Gordon of ForeScout, a leading provider of pervasive network security solutions that allow organizations to continuously monitor and mitigate security exposures and cyber attacks.. Mr. Gordon is an accomplished and industry-recognized leader who has helped evolve security information management, network and endpoint security, and risk management technologies.

The Global CISO Forum is an invite-only event taking place in Atlanta, GA on October 16 and 17, 2014 open only to senior information security executives (C-levels, VPs, Senior Directors, etc.). Anyone interested in attending should send their resume to amber.williams(at)eccouncil(dot)org.

Scamming the Elderly Killing Seniors

<strong>Mostyn Law Firm Associate to Address Houston Area Seniors</strong>

Mostyn Law Firm attorney will speak to a group of Houston seniors to help them avoid becoming victims of fraudulent scams.

Houston, Texas – August 08 – On Wednesday, August 20th, Mostyn Law Firm Associate, Sean Timmons will speak to a group of senior citizens about how to protect themselves from becoming victims of fraudulent scams. The speaking engagement will be held in Houston, Texas at the AHEPA Independent Senior Living Community. The event titled “How to Prevent Becoming a Victim of Fraudulent Scams,” will be given free of charge to a group of 25 low-income seniors in the Houston area.

“It is important that senior citizens get the information they need to protect themselves from would be scammers,” Timmons said. “This is a chance for us to give the vulnerable members of our community the tools they need to recognize and prevent attacks that take advantage of them.”

Timmons will provide the group with information from the Federal Trade Commission and other publicly available resources to offer common sense tips in identifying and avoiding potential scams. The talk will help seniors avoid common scams that target them by soliciting money through various communication sources, such as emails and letters which state, “You’ve won a new car, now just pay the taxes and it’s yours” or “This is your bank, we are updating our records and need to confirm your identity, please tell us your social security number and date of birth so we can confirm your account is in good status.” Timmons will also be offering advice on recognizing in-person scams that some car dealerships commonly practice by convincing seniors to re-sign their contracts at lower payments at much longer terms.

Sean Timmons, a former United States Army Captain with overseas wartime experience and service in the Judge Advocates General’s Corps and now a local honorably discharged veteran, represents clients of Mostyn Law Firm across the greater Houston region, as well as representing fellow veterans on a pro bono basis.
