The number of breaches traced to third-party vendors is rapidly growing and damage caused by such an attack can be substantial. Therefore it is important that you give the same attention to your third-party vendors’ security and compliance performance as you do your own.
While having a thorough understanding of your vendor's digital security proficiency is essential, it is time consuming and inconvenient to obtain this information. This is especially true if your organization works with a large volume of third-party vendors. Qumulus Solutions offers Third-Party Vendor Compliance Assessments to assist with conducting a thorough analysis of each vendor.
When evaluating a third-party vendor's digital security posture you need to assess a variety of areas including their current digital security programs, access control, IT infrastructure, business continuity plans and staff training.
