Third-party vendors are crucial for businesses to scale and run their operations efficiently. However, their access to your data and network increases exposure to risk, which makes vendor risk and third-party risk management (TPRM) critical to increase visibility into the supply chain.
The covid19 pandemic accelerated digital transformation throughout most industries. The big concern now is that the technologies and third-party vendors used in this transformation can also be the conduit for attackers to gain access to data.
According to a recent study from IBM, the average total cost of a data breach in 2021 is US$ 4.24 million. In addition, 60% of data breaches are linked to third parties, and 51% of companies have experienced a third-party data breach.
Financial loss is topped by:
Operational Risk – Business continuity can easily be compromised, as the Colonial Pipeline attack exposed.
Reputational Risk – Your customers’ trust is one of the most valuable assets to protect and can quickly erode.
Legal Risk – Being proactive with cybersecurity can mitigate suits for negligence and ensures compliance.
With all this evidence, you can now demonstrate to your company that TPRM has to be a priority.
