  • How To Prevent Data Breaches From Your Unknown 3rd & 4th Party Vendors How To Prevent Data Breaches From Your Unknown 3rd & 4th Party Vendors Bennett Morrison, VP of Product and Nikon Rasumov, Director of Product Recorded: Mar 10 2016 17 mins
    Sometimes your biggest security challenge is the vendors who are unknown to the risk management team.

    Traditionally, in order to determine vendors an enterprise is engaged with, it required working with procurement and surveying various departments and individuals.

    It’s a time-consuming process that is prone to errors, oversights, and doesn’t account for the many “shadow” vendor relationships that may exist. Even when the vendor is known, in order to determine their level of security you had to use questionnaires or ask them to install intrusive software on each one of their computers. These methods don’t provide accurate visibility into the vulnerabilities across your entire business ecosystem, are expensive, and labor intensive.

    In this 30 minute webinar, Bennett Morrison, VP of Product and Nikon Rasumov, Director of Product, introduces Automatic Vendor Detection (AVD™), a SecurityScorecard module that discovers vendors and their security posture throughout an organization's business ecosystem.


    You will learn how:

    + Third and fourth party vendor weaknesses are exploited to obtain your organizational data

    + Challenges of determining your third and fourth party relationships throughout an enterprise

    + Standard vendor identification methods fail to provide an accurate ongoing assessment of third and fourth party risk

    + Leveraging AVD will uncover risks previously unknown to the risk management team

    + AVD automatically detects and determines vendors part of your business ecosystem
