Outsourcing IT services is a common practice, nowadays, mostly due to the potentially substantial benefits it delivers: cost savings, focus on the core business, advanced efficiency/effectiveness and eventually competitive advantage. However, vendors can introduce a significant level of risk in the organization’s ecosystem, since they mostly operate outside its direct control. Despite this fact, organizations often overlook the threat vector imposed by their vendors, mainly attributed to latter’s partial or poor application of good security policies and controls. Being unaware of their vendors’ security posture, many organizations struggle to identify the level of imported risks and the means to individually address them. Establishing a robust Vendor Security Management Program and incorporating it into the organization’s security governance is the only sustainable and feasible solution.
