Which "Friends" Do I Trust? Realities of 3rd Party Risk

Think Tank - 2:25 pm - 2:50 pm

It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to third parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus, collaborating with our business partners early to select the right third-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets.

  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of third parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data.
