MSPs can make use of a powerful cybersecurity report to communicate security findings to their clients. They can assist their clients to reduce their vulnerability to cyber-attacks and establish a reliable partnership with the stakeholders. There are a few best methods to use when creating cybersecurity reports to effectively communicate security vulnerabilities to those who are involved.
A cybersecurity report should begin by identifying the most important vulnerabilities and their impact on the business. This will allow you to prioritize the most critical threats and provide your clients with a the most accurate picture of their overall risk.
Second, your cybersecurity report should provide insight into the difficulty to exploit every vulnerability. This can be accomplished by using metrics such as CVSS scores as well as the number of times they occur and the length of time that the vulnerabilities have been present.
The third point is to include in your cybersecurity report the ways you are fixing the weaknesses that pose the biggest threat to your client’s operations. This can be done by presenting a report on any remediation measures you’ve taken to mitigate these risks, as well as their effectiveness. Additionally, it is crucial to present a comparative analysis of the security level of your client against that of their peers in the field.

In short, a cyber board report is a complex document that takes plenty of time and effort to create. If you follow these guidelines and using a platform that automates the collection of information from various tools, and then presenting it in a structured manner to make cyber security reporting more efficient and streamline.
