You may have a false sense of security. You’ve spent the last several years shoring up your internal security controls to protect your organization against cyberattacks, security incidents and breaches. But have your third party service providers shored up theirs? Your third party vendors have become recent hotbeds for data breaches. Why? Because their data security controls likely do not match your high standards. Dependency on outsourcing to third parties (including Cloud service providers) requires a robust third party risk program to assess data security processes that includes industry-wide best practices, tools and proven strategies. This session will outline how third parties put your data at risk and what you need to do now to protect your organization.
