As enterprise IT demands expand and become more complex, organizations need to update their methods to assess the security posture of third party vendors, partners, and others in their supply chain. Did you know that security ratings can enhance your third party risk management program?
Ratings provide a score that organizations can rely on and factor into their decision-making process, enabling fair comparisons to improve accuracy and transparency in the risk assessment process. You can think of them as an equivalent to credit scores.
The higher the security rating, the better the organization’s security posture. Conversely, poor security ratings can indicate that an organization’s data is at risk.
In order to be scalable and automated, security ratings feed on objective, externally observable, continuously available information.
Most organizations performing third party risk management (TPRM) use security ratings as part of their vendor risk assessments and continuous monitoring processes. They serve as a resource to determine whether or not they can trust a vendor with access to their network and data, and alert on any changes in their security posture once the contract is signed. They complement other risk assessment tools, such as questionnaires, certifications, insurances, or external audits.
Security ratings can help you understand third-party and fourth-party risk across your supply chain, including your vendors and business partners. In an interconnected, ever changing digital world, how well your data is secured across your supply chain is a matter of great importance.
Leveraging objective cybersecurity ratings and risk data will add context to your inherent risk tiers, and increase accuracy in your vendor vetting and risk assessments.
