Assessing Third-Party Vendor Security Programs
In today’s challenging business environment, many organizations have chosen to outsource various non-core business functions to specialized third-party vendors. This often involves granting access to sensitive business and customer information to those vendors.
While third-party outsourcing may make perfectly good business sense, it can also introduce new risks. A structured Vendor Security Assessment can ensure these risks are properly managed. For many organizations, vendor security reviews are also a regulatory or industry-standard compliance requirement.
Using a qualified cyber security consulting firm like Delta Risk, you can determine if your business partners deserve your trust. Armed with the information from a Vendor Security Assessment, you can develop a plan of action for your partners to maintain and strengthen current environments and minimize security control weaknesses.
