Regardless of your internal security standards, vendors can be your weakest link. When third parties have access to your business, their security gaps become yours. More than half of all security breaches result from third-party vendors hired by your organization. So it’s critical that you identify the vendors working for you and determine the level of risk they bring. The easiest way to do this is by establishing a Vendor Risk Management (VRM) program.

If you’re unsure how your organization handles vendor risk or you don’t know how to start a VRM program, join XBAND for our next free webinar: Vendors = Risk, Manage it.
