No Party like a Third Party: Ensuring Successful & Secure Vendor Management

On Demand

Supply chain-based cyber-attacks, which have risen dramatically since the COVID pandemic, pose an ever-increasing threat to organizations. SolarWinds, Accellion, Microsoft Exchange, Colonial Pipeline—every week seems to bring to light another compromised critical third-party vendor and industry titan.

These events highlight the inherent risks an interwoven, global supply chain can pose to continued operations. And these highly public attacks will certainly not be the last.

To help your organization understand and better prepare for these threats, join Jennifer Bisceglie, CEO and founder of Interos Inc; David Levine, VP Corporate and Information Security, CSO, of Ricoh; Mitch Parker, CISO of Indiana University Health; Rick Doten, VP, Information Security, Centene and CISO, Carolina Complete Health; and Marian Reed, Former Head of IT Security at Serta Simmons Bedding.

    1. Ensuring that new vendors are secure throughout the process, from sourcing to on-boarding.
    2. The necessity of keeping all vendors and systems updated and preserving compatibility.
    3. Addressing a partner breach or threat and knowing when to work together and when to walk away.
