Third-Party Risk Assessment

Optiv offers a third-party risk assessment solution that enables you to effectively plan, develop and manage risk more easily and cost-efficiently.

Enhance Third-Party Risk Assessment with Optiv

Third-party risk assessment is essential for protecting your organization from a variety of threats, but developing and overseeing a third-party risk management (TPRM) program can be extraordinarily resource-intensive. The need is real – more than half of security breaches today originate with a third party. Yet the sheer volume of partners, vendors and other third parties makes robust third-party risk assessment almost cost-prohibitive.


Optiv can help. We offer third-party risk solutions that enable you to effectively plan, develop and manage third-party risk assessment more easily and cost-efficiently while significantly reducing your exposure to high-risk third-party relationships.
