As organizations increase the quantity and complexity of digital services they provide to their customers they are increasingly relying on partners, vendors and 3rd parties to support them.

This means that the old model of snapshot assessments is falling behind in providing the timely conversations needed in today’s dynamic environment where data sharing is assumed and partners are providing business critical services outside an organization’s infrastructure.

Join us to discuss how digital attack surfaces are expanding, what information is available to assess risk, the methodology on what makes up a score and where to use them, how to engage in constructive conversations with your partners and showcase results to leadership.
