Do you know how strong your third-party vendors’ IT Security is? Do you know if they take security seriously?
Vendors who can log in to your systems to handle business operations on your behalf – or who simply log in for other reasons – could be a gateway for criminals to hack your data.
Key vendors with security problems also could shut you down when they go down. If they handle mission-critical services and get ransomware, your business could be impacted too.
It may not be in your wheelhouse to assess your vendors’ security – but it’s in ours. Check out our September newsletter for more information – or download our latest White Paper on Vendor Management.

And if you are a vendor – contact us too to see if your security posture is where it should be – before the big client categorizes you as a business risk!
