What kind of programs do organizations have in place to manage vendor risk?

In far too many instances, protections against cyber breaches remain woefully inadequate. A primary source of weakness is your company’s community of vendors and other “trusted” partners that often have privileged access to your data, systems, and networks. If a vendor’s own security practices are inadequate, or if its employees are negligent or ill-intentioned, your company’s sensitive data can be placed at significant risk.

Vendor risk management requires automated and continuous security assessments and benchmarking based on objective data.
