Critical Areas in Evaluating Third-Party Risks
February 4, 2021
By now, you’ve likely heard about recent security attacks affecting FireEye and SolarWinds and the resulting impact on their customers. These unfortunate events have prompted many organizations to look at their third-party risk management (TPRM) programs to reevaluate their current and future exposure to similar attacks.
Digital and business transformation pressures have driven many organizations to rely upon third parties to maintain or enhance their business model objectives. As companies continue to rely on third-party products and services, it’s critical that their customers have a clear understanding of how and where these services are used.
There’s no questioning the value of the efficiencies and enhancements third parties bring to the table, but relying on the effectiveness of unknown information security controls represents increased risk. While TPRM review processes provide a level of confidence, they aren’t foolproof and failures can occur. And as we all know, being compliant doesn’t guarantee security. Assessments like a SOC2 report can be an indicator of program maturity; however, these activities cannot be relied upon entirely to ensure effective or authoritative due diligence.
The use of third parties provides organizations with valuable tools and resources needed to run the business; however, they add surface area to your environment. Having a TPRM program in place and operating effectively is your only means of protecting your environment while enjoying the benefits of third-party suppliers.
