Supplier Risk Management

Optiv offers a comprehensive suite of supplier risk management solutions that can simplify third-party risk assessment, management and mitigation.

Improve Supplier Risk Management with Optiv

With more than 50 percent of all breaches today originating from a third-party, supplier risk management is a growing concern for enterprise IT teams. Third-party risk management (TPRM) is critical both to protecting the organization and its people and data, and to complying with a host of regulatory frameworks such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and others.


Designing, implementing and monitoring a supplier risk management program usually isn't within the bandwidth of even the largest IT organizations. The sheer volume of third-party relationships in a typical enterprise makes supplier risk management extremely costly. And while third-parties are increasingly important to conducting business today, IT teams must ensure that the third-party risk doesn't outweigh the benefits.


Optiv can help. We offer a comprehensive suite of supplier risk management solutions that can simplify third-party risk assessment, management and mitigation to minimize your company's risk exposure while also reducing the cost of managing third-party relationships.
