Working with vendors and a supply chain, including software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud providers is becoming essential for every business. Vendors may support integral day-to-day operations of a company or have access to critical and sensitive data. However, the same vendors relied on by companies can quickly become their greatest cyber threat. This presentation will help participants understand the importance of comprehensive vendor management programs and how to successfully implement one. The topics covered will include assessing contractual provisions in vendor agreements, performing due diligence on vendors, managing issues around data sharing and confidentiality, risk identification and assessment, information security standards, data breach response and more.
