Cybersecurity risks are the most common risk posed by third-party partners and represent a significant challenge for companies. A data breach may result in the disclosure of private data, fines, and other legal requirements.
This involves the risk of third-party vendors disrupting normal business operations. Contractually binding service level agreements (SLAs) are signed to reduce the impact.
Risks that directly influence your company's finances. For example, if you rely on a third party to handle your supply chain and they fail to deliver, your business may suffer losses.
Data privacy risks concern how the partner organisation handles personal data. These risks could lead to legal action or unwanted publicity.
Negative publicity associated with a data breach can damage a company's reputation but benefit the third party.
The possibility that your company may fail to accomplish its business objectives because of a third-party provider.
We then classify the vendors depending on the severity of the damage they can do to your firm. To fully comprehend this, we first establish where the data is stored and if it is processed further. Our team also considers other aspects that may suggest the type of security evaluation needed.
We compile a list of all your third-party merchants. Our strategy is to start with the suppliers most consequential to your organisation's functioning and then move on to the lesser ones that provide assistance. We make sure not to exclude any seller, regardless of size, because you never know which one might jeopardise your entire business.
We then grade third-party providers depending on the amount of threat to your business. There are three risk levels: high, medium, and low. High and medium-risk vendors deal with critical operations or sensitive data, whereas low-risk vendors do not.
After thoroughly assessing the vendors and threats they may pose, we get a clear understanding that allows us to quickly increase the security of your third-party data transfers. We also regularly monitor your operations to secure your information and company image.
