To stay competitive and focus on business goals, it is common practice for a business to utilize third-party solutions for non-core business activities. However, the proliferation of SaaS providers offering low-cost and easy-to-adopt technology solutions can cause a business to unintentionally suffer from vendor sprawl.
The impact of a third-party solution to a business’s security posture cannot be understated. Numerous security breaches can be attributed to weaknesses introduced using third-party solution. The use of third-party solutions can have an unintended impact to a business’s cyber-security ecosystem.
Likewise, federal and state regulators are increasingly focusing on third-party technology vendors and the part they play in cybersecurity programs, creating additional regulatory risk for businesses. Proper management and monitoring of third-parties are an essential security control for today’s modern business.
We will explore topics such as third-party risk best practices, shadow IT management, vendor contracts, and impact of regulatory requirements.
