MSPs can use a strong cybersecurity report to communicate security findings to their clients. These reports can assist clients in reducing their vulnerability to cyber threats and establish a trustworthy partnership with other stakeholders. When it comes to preparing cybersecurity reports, there are several best practices that must be followed in order to effectively communicate security risks with stakeholders.
A cybersecurity report should start by identifying the most important vulnerabilities and their impact on the business. This will help your clients decide which threats are the most important to take on and provide them with an understanding of their overall risk profile.
Your cybersecurity report must provide information into the difficulty to exploit every vulnerability. This can be done using metrics like CVSS scores as well as the number of times they occur and the length of time that the vulnerabilities have been in use.
The third point is to include in your cybersecurity report how you’re taking action to address the vulnerabilities which pose the greatest threat to your client’s operations. This can be done by presenting a report of any remediation measures you’ve implemented to address these security risks and the effectiveness of these. Finally, it is important to provide a comparison of your client’s security posture to that of their peers in the industry. ConnectWise’s Service Leadership Index is a great tool to do this.
