Key Cybersecurity Elements Are Risk-Rated
Stay Ahead with a Proactive Defense
Improve vendor and supplier oversight by identifying gaps or weaknesses
Understanding your vendor's or supplier’s cybersecurity posture is critical. Without it, those third parties could become your organization's most vulnerable point for cyber breaches. A single lapse in their defense mechanisms can expose sensitive data, disrupt operations, and erode trust with both partners and customers.
With Venminder's Point-in-Time Cybersecurity Assessment, every document and response from your vendor or supplier undergoes meticulous analysis by our experienced and certified professionals, providing depth, precision, and a level of expertise that grants you solid confidence in the results.
Ensure your vendors and suppliers are aligned with cybersecurity standards
Cybersecurity is a focal point for regulators. Failing to demonstrate proactive measures could result in hefty fines, loss of customer trust, and severe reputational damage. Regulatory bodies are intensifying their focus on third-party vendor and supplier relationships, ensuring that organizations not only protect their internal systems but also extend security protocols across their entire supply chain.
Venminder reviews multiple aspects of your vendor's or supplier’s cybersecurity stance. We check whether security testing is performed and how they are safeguarding sensitive data. We also evaluate employee training protocols and assess their incident response readiness. This review is meticulously mapped to key industry frameworks, regulations, and laws, ensuring your vendor or supplier meets cybersecurity regulatory expectations.
Create a risk-based framework for assessing vendor and supplier cybersecurity readiness
Keeping up with reviewing your vendors’ or suppliers’ most current cybersecurity measures can be time-consuming and challenging, especially for organizations with a large volume of third-party vendors and suppliers. Without a structured process or system to capture and log due diligence documents and data, it can easily lead to potential oversights.
Our assessment offers a standardized and reliable way to compare and evaluate your vendor's or supplier's cybersecurity readiness. You gain an understanding into the adequacy of their cybersecurity measures, with easy to understand risk-based ratings that you can use to identify action items and priorities for follow-up due diligence.Request a Demo
