Vendors and business associates are the business mainstays in the years to come. While organizations strive to cut costs, reduce liabilities and internal dependencies, they are veering aggressively towards outsourcing in every sphere of their business activity. While necessary protection is given to information assets within the organization, the third party personnel who are handling the organization's sensitive information are not even checked for their information security controls.
We assess third parties on their information handling from the security perspective and organizations expectations. We help organizations develop 'Minimum Acceptance Criteria' when it comes to selection of third parties or working with existing outsourced agencies. The assessment report will help the organization to lay down the minimum requirement of security when the third party is handling the sensitive information.
