Staying secure when you rely on small- to medium-sized vendors

Business partners, vendors, third parties … they all are key components to running a successful business. However, they also introduce risks that must be identified and understood so the disruptions can be kept to a minimum and your data is secure.

Many of the Fortune 1000 have implemented robust vendor risk management programs to identify, categorize, assess, and mitigate the risks of their third parties, however recent high profile data breaches have shed light on the impact small- and medium-sized businesses have to the entire vendor risks management process. In addition, in 2016, the Ponemon Institute indicated it can take organizations up to 201 days to even identify malicious activity and 70 days to contain, many involving third party relationships and connections.[1]
