Collaborative Accountability in Third Party Cyber Risk Management
Executive SummaryWhen the organization approaches information security in third party management in manual processes, there is no possibility to be intelligent about information security governance, risk management, and compliance in these relationships. An ad hoc approach to third party management results in poor visibility across the organization, because there is no framework or architecture for managing third party information security risk and compliance as an integrated framework.
