Become a cybersecurity market leader
A two-stage program to begin or boost your cybersecurity offering, take it to market and progress to industry-recognized certification that will set your MSSP apart
Stage One: Starting an MSSP
MSSP Accelerator Essentials
You want to begin – or expand – your cybersecurity offering, but where to start? Whether you’re already selling security services, just getting started with your security practice, or your cybersecurity business is simply an idea at this stage – we know how to get you onto the right track.
MSSP Accelerator Essentials is an MSP-focused, self-paced program that guides you through the setting up of a security practice and helps you set up your go-to-market strategy. We introduce you to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework & CIS Critical Security Controls, help you price and package your resale offering, and share expert knowledge to develop your marketing strategy and sales pipeline management.
We cover all the questions you may be asking about MSSP best practices, resources and marketing – or that you didn’t know you should be.
At the end of the self-led program you’ll have a clear idea of which security services are profitable to offer your clients, how to successfully onboard and deliver operationally, and have a go-to-market strategy in place.
The program covers:
Targeting and closing sweet spot prospects and handling common objections
Introduction to the framework that will form the basis of your approach (NIST CSF / CIS 20)
Packaging and pricing your security offering in an easy to understand way for your clients
Create a go-to-market strategy and/or assessment of your existing cybersecurity practice
Create and execute a best-in-class onboarding process, and understand deployment and threat response essentials
Ongoing sales enablement and pipeline assistance working with your internal sales resources
