How to Create Cybersecurity Reports for MSPs

A solid cybersecurity report is an essential tool for MSPs to use to convey their security findings to clients. These reports allow them to help their clients reduce their exposure to cyber threats and establish a trusting relationship with stakeholders. When it comes time to create cybersecurity reports, there are several best practices to be followed in order to effectively communicate security vulnerabilities to the stakeholders.

The first thing an informational report on cybersecurity should do is identify the most significant vulnerabilities and their impacts on the organization. This will help you determine the most serious threats and provide your clients with an understanding of their overall risk.

Secondly, your cybersecurity report should provide insight into the difficultness of exploiting every vulnerability. This can be accomplished by using metrics like CVSS scores, the number of occurrences 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 fixing the weaknesses which pose the greatest threat to your client’s operations. This can be accomplished by providing a summary on any remediation measures you’ve taken in order to address these risks, and their effectiveness. Additionally, it is crucial to provide a competitive comparison of your client’s security measures to the security posture of their peers in the field. Utilizing resources such as ConnectWise’s Service Leadership Index can be an effective way to achieve this objective.

A cyber board report can be a complicated document that requires a lot of effort and time to produce. If you follow these tips and taking advantage of a system that automates the process of obtaining information from multiple tools and making it available in a structured way, you can improve your cyber security reporting efforts more efficient and streamline.
