On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, I hosted Gil Vidals from VMRacks to talk about their HIPAA Compliant Cloud. VMRacks isn’t a vendor offering MSPs a place to host but rather an MSP themselves.
Gil gave some great insight into how they got started as well as how they’ve setup security for their hosting business. Some of their security measures a secret but you still get a good idea of why it’s important to have multiple layers in your cloud deployments. VMRacks is able to offer great value because they use a lot of open source software.
On January 15, 2019, we were pleased to host J. David Sims from HIPAA for MSPs. David gave a great presentation on what he calls “Duct Tape HIPAA”. Too many MSPs don’t understand what’s required for HIPAA or simply do the bare minimum. David explains how you can grow revenue and provide you HIPAA clients support above and beyond what is required. There’s also a special offer at the end, but act fast, it expires at midnight on January 18, 2019.
If you’d like to know more, please check out the HIPAA for MSPs website as they offer education and resources to make sure you’re HIPAA compliant.

If you’re an MSP who struggles with marketing (or sales) then you should definitely check this webinar out. I hear from a lot of MSPs that marketing and sales are 2 areas they struggle with, especially if they’re a small MSP and don’t have dedicated marketing.
We’re going to be trying something new over the next few months…webinars! The idea behind the webinars is to provide more resources to our MSP community. The podcast will still be MSPs but the webinars will allow us to have experts and vendors as guests.
The idea for webinars came about because we heard feedback that our podcast listeners only wanted to hear from MSPs, not vendors. With a webinar, participation is voluntary and you know what it will be before registering. We will also keep recordings of the webinars on the site so you can watch when you want if you can’t attend during the scheduled time.
Our goal is to provide resources the community wants so if you have an idea for a topic/webinar, just let us know in the comments!
