Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to 3rd-parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus, collaborating with our business partners early to select the right third-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets.

Takeaways:

  1. Regardless of the reasons, outsourcing some business functions to a 3rd party seems inevitable in today's world.
  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of third parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data.
