CyberMSI was founded in 2020 by Fawaad Khan, a seasoned cybersecurity executive, to make organizations more resilient to cybersecurity attacks such as ransomware.
Cyber attacks continue to disproportionally affect small and mid-size (SMB) organizations because they typically lack in-house resources and skills to deal with them. Fawaad recognized that organizations need responsive, experienced cybersecurity professionals who not only detect but also mitigate cybersecurity incidents to avoid business disruptions and minimize the damage.
However, most cybersecurity managed services providers severely under-perform in meeting these needs for a variety of reasons. Complicating matters further, some organizations often focus on buying a multitude of cybersecurity products in efforts to become more secure instead of focusing on key risk areas using the right tech and capabilities for improved cybersecurity posture.
AT CyberMSI, we’re committed to assisting organizations by providing swift, effective cybersecurity mitigation using our skills and specialization in Microsoft’s cybersecurity tech.
We believe in these principles and live by them to make a difference to our customers, employees and communities.
Work’s more than a paycheck. We provide opportunities for professional growth, learning, and achievement.
Security Top of Mind
We need everyone to always act in a manner that makes our customers more secure.
We need everyone to make decisions and act urgently because our business demands it.
Details Matter - A Lot
We strive to excel in what we do, and that means not just embracing but mastering the details.
One Team in Purpose
But not in perspectives because this way we avoid group-think to arrive at better answers.
We’re responsible for our work and take full ownership of it.
