Managing Information Security Risk in Your Partner Ecosystem
Managing Information Security Risk in Your Partner Ecosystem

Today, organizations have hundreds (and often thousands) of business partners with whom they share sensitive data, exposing them to the risk of a breach through a partner network. This is the nature of the "boundaryless organization" and presents a challenge to security and risk managers as they struggle with ensuring the security of enterprise data while meeting the requirements of the modern business.

Unfortunately, current methods for assessing these risks are inadequate against emerging threats as they provide only point-in-time analysis of the third party network's security posture. Questionnaire based assessments are subjective and static. Network and application testing are expensive and do not reflect on going risk. Risk managers need a cost effective and objective way to quantify and mitigate risk on a continuous basis.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • What security risks corporations face in today's environment
  • Current methods for assessing partner security risk
  • How to factor in the security posture of your extended enterprise to make better risk based decisions
  • Use cases & selection criteria for building or choosing a solution

Background

How secure are you against third party data breach? If you share sensitive information with business partners, you are at greater risk of breach then you may realize. According to a recent Ponemon study, 65% of organizations who have outsourced consumer data to a vendor have been breached via that party's network. Third party breaches tend to result in greater data loss and higher costs than breaches on a company's internal network. Given these facts, it is no surprise that Chief Risk Officers and Chief Security Officers are seeking a better way to manage risk across their partner ecosystem.

Attend this webinar, featuring Mike Rothman, President & Analyst at Securosis and Stephen Boyer, CTO of BitSight Technologies, to learn new methods for assessing vendor risk that go beyond the standard means of questionnaires, network tests and audits. You will learn how evidence based security ratings can help your organization make truly risk based decisions to mitigate vendor risk.
