Undisclosed cybersecurity breaches are a daily occurrence. While major attacks like SolarWinds and Hafnium send cybersecurity teams running to check their exposure because they make headlines, systematic risk from supply chain and other partner organizations necessitates a continuous monitoring cycle for third-party risk management and compliance.
The briefing will focus on how cybersecurity ratings (CSR) have evolved, where industry analysts see gaps, and the innovations expected over the next 12-18 months. Cybersecurity leaders, whether at large firms with thousands of partners or smaller organizations with 20 crucial ones, ought to be thinking about new approaches to resilience such as chaos engineering and discussions of systemic and cognitive risk, will find great value in this discussion.
Senior cybersecurity professionals will discuss why your 3rd party vendors put you at higher risk than you think, including details on all the undisclosed breaches that may not be circulating in the news.
Get Involved! Ask questions to the live expert CISO panelists to share concerns, ideas and get involved with the cybersecurity community.
Industry experts will discuss their experiences, intended plans, and exchange best practices for how to address third-party risk management and compliance.
