Managing Third Party Risk
Prospective clients, partners, would-be investors, and compliance frameworks often require validation not just of your organization’s security posture, but evidence that you have vetted and are managing your vendors’ cybersecurity posture.
Prospective clients, partners, would-be investors, want to ensure that you are not vulnerable to a supply chain attack, and that you are mitigating this risk with best practices around vendor management. However, walking each of your vendors through an assessment, obtaining necessary documentation from them, plotting them on a risk matrix, and organizing this information into a central location can be time consuming. For this reason, many organizations find themselves putting vendor management off, which results in struggle and panic when someone requests this information from them. Almost always, there is a business deal on the line whose outcome depends on proper vendor documentation.
