    Level: Basic

    Recommended Prerequisite: None

    Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge

    Organizations of all size and industry now rely on vendors and other third parties for crucial business processes — which exposes those organizations to data security risk (fraud, data theft, espionage) like never before. The risk itself isn’t a surprise but assessing and remediating it can be maddeningly difficult.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Review the current state of oversight that most companies have over business partners handling their confidential data
    • Consider why weak oversight is a failure of policy and procedures rather than of IT security
    • Understand the risk assessment processes and other resources that companies can use to monitor data security risk among their vendors and other third parties
