Security Testing

We administer a review to provide you with insights into your vendor or supplier’s penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, and social engineering exercises carried out on their systems and personnel. 


Information Security Governance

Our assessment on information security governance provides a clear view of whether the vendor or supplier has formal programs, policies and industry standard practices in place, such as whether they have an information security policy, have a designated CISO, conduct background checks and more.  


Sensitive Data Security

We evaluate the security practices employed by your vendors or suppliers to protect sensitive data that is stored and processed. Our assessment covers encryption, secure device configuration, incident detection and response, as well as their application security.



We assess the ability of your vendor or supplier to withstand virtual and physical potentially business-impacting events, including reviewing controls ranging from data backups to on-site generators to better understand the potential for uninterrupted continuation of your business operations, even in challenging situations. 


Business Continuity

We determine your vendor or supplier's capacity to provide services during unexpected business disruptions, and their ability to resume normal operations, including Recovery Time Objective and Recovery Point Objective. We also verify that they have documented business continuity and disaster recovery plans in place. 

Augment your team and streamline supplier and vendor data protection reviews

Ensure vendor and supplier  compliance with data privacy laws and regulations

Navigating the intricate landscape of local, national, and international data protection laws and regulations can be daunting. Keeping pace with the evolving regulations requires constant vigilance and deep expertise. Data privacy compliance responsibility extends throughout the supply chain where your organization could face severe consequences for failures by a vendor.

We thoroughly evaluate your vendor's data protection practices for alignment with regulations and standards, ensuring the vendor has implemented critical controls found within regulatory requirements, standards, frameworks, and laws, including US state and international privacy laws, such as CPRA, VCDPA and GDPR. This assessment enables your organization's decision-makers to quickly assess, spot areas of concern and give the information needed to address the data risks associated with vendors confidently.
