Do you know all the vendors who have access to your systems where work activities occur?
Do you have all the vendors documented?
If you have not documented every third party that has any type of access to, or stores, your organization's information and systems, then you could have significant information security and privacy risks that you aren't aware of. And, you may be in violation with one, to many, legal compliance requirements.
Organizations must document all types of vendors that they to perform business activities on their behalf to be able to effectively manage their vendor risks, to support vendor management compliance requirements, and also to demonstrate due diligence to regulators, auditors, and business clients.
The first step in vendor management is establishing a vendor inventory of all third parties with any type of access to business and personal information from your organization. Keep this inventory updated.
Then, use this inventory to identify where regulated data is located, to support timely and regulated breach response activities, to demonstrate due diligence, and to determine when new risks emerge. In addition to many other benefits.
Our vendor inventory provides the first step for you to take in effectively managing your third parties. It also is beneficial for improving your existing vendor management activities that do not include a vendor inventory.
