Cybersecurity company Blackpoint Cyber has launched Blackpoint University, a new learning platform to empower MSPs to mature their core business operations. Blackpoint University will offer sales and technical cybersecurity training, with instruction by leaders from the military, intelligence, and business communities.
According to the company, the new platform will also help MSPs increase their proficiency in cybersecurity, with courses in threat operations, cyber insurance, and compliance. Because 44% of MSPs report a need for technical staff training, a technical track of courses featuring topics like threat hunting, cloud security, and best practices for MSP security will be available to Blackpoint partners later this year, as will cybersecurity sales training. In a market where cybersecurity expertise is in short supply, MSPs can distinguish themselves with specialized knowledge.
"At Blackpoint, we understand the challenges of running an IT services business,” said Jon Murchison, CEO and founder of Blackpoint Cyber, in a press statement. “That's why we're committed to providing resources that enable MSPs to enhance their business acumen, build stronger operations, and achieve long-term success. Our success is tied to the success of our MSP partners, and we're dedicated to supporting them every step of the way."
Blackpoint University’s inaugural event will be held on June 5, 2023, at IT Nation Secure in Orlando. Attendees will participate in a daylong session of courses in leadership, finance, sales and marketing, threat operations, insurance, and compliance.
These core Blackpoint University courses will be available to the whole MSP community for on-demand online viewing at no cost beginning in June.
