Why do MSPs need insurance?

Your clients rely on you to run their technology smoothly, but if something goes wrong, your business could take the blame. Business insurance can cover your legal costs if a client sues over downtime, or help pay for data breach recovery expenses if you or your client suffers a cyberattack. Certain policies may be required by state laws or client contracts.
