A Holistic Approach to Cybersecurity and ComplianceMike Ferris and Mike Brooks of Abacode on the MCCP Model
Mike Ferris and Mike Brooks of Abacode, a managed cybersecurity and compliance provider, discuss how the MCCP model helps businesses implement a holistic, framework-based cybersecurity program that provides continuous security and compliance.
Compliance with standards such as SOC 2, ISO 27001 can be overwhelming for businesses that don’t have in-house resources. But compliance is an essential component of risk management, Brooks says.

- The convergence of cybersecurity and compliance in the new category MCCP;
- How MSSPs can avoid getting attacked;
- The future of cybersecurity and compliance.
