Take proactive steps to identify and mitigate potential areas of weakness.
In today’s environment, many organizations are investing heavily in their cybersecurity programs but often forget to invest in ensuring their vendors are doing the same. By taking the necessary precautions and understanding your vendor’s cybersecurity posture, you can reduce the risk of your third parties becoming your weakest link.
