Course Description

A company’s cybersecurity and data privacy compliance programs are only as good as their weakest links, which often are the company’s third-party vendors. In fact, some of the largest recent data breaches and privacy scandals have been caused by the failure to adequately manage and supervise third-parties that have access to sensitive company data and systems. This program, presented by Joseph Facciponti and Michelle Bradford of Murphy & McGonigle, P.C., will review the third-party threat landscape, the current state of the law in this area, and practical tips for managing and mitigating third-party risks.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explore the data security and data privacy threats posed by third-party vendors
  2. Review the laws and regulations around third-party vendor risk management
  3. Provide practical suggestions for managing cyber risks posed by third-party vendors

I like what you had to day about the physical location. Often, people who are considering cyber security threats fail to consider the efforts that should be taken to secure the physical infrastructure of networks and portals. Thanks.
