The MSP and CSP Shared Responsibility Model For Secure Customer Account Management

Many organizations lacking the experience and resources to adopt public cloud services, prefer working with an MSP or CSP and not directly with a cloud provider to make sure their cloud deployment is well-architected, efficient and secure.

There is a cloud-related concept of shared responsibility, which refers to the distribution of responsibility for cloud security between the cloud providers and the end-users. This concept must be reexamined in cases where an MSP stands as an intermediary between them since the responsibility is then shared by three parties instead of two.

In this paper, we will delve into the shared responsibility concept and understand the security responsibilities MSPs have toward their customers, as well as the opportunity for them to offer security as a value-added-service and revenue generator.
