Third-Party Risk Management.
You have secured your organisation and operations, but how secure are your third-party suppliers and partners? Assessing and mitigating the risks they might introduce into your systems is a critical component of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy.
Trading relationships have evolved as technologies have. The digital landscape today is cutthroat and relationships once built on trust have thinned as they’ve proliferated across the supply chain. What businesses face now is a strict demand from larger organisations – that they’re meeting the same commercial and legal compliance requirements as them. If they aren’t, a relationship is rarely viable.
Supplier security management is a growing and significant portion of cyber risk. Taking steps today to address supplier cyber risks will help mitigate the exposure to your organisation — and reduce the risk of being the next headline.

What Problems does our Supplier Assurance service solve?
Our Supplier Assurance service will help clients to address the following common issues:
- A lack of consistency in the client’s approach to managing suppliers.
- The need for a common standard related security control questionnaire;
- Greater transparency to drive up accountability.
- The acknowledgement that not all suppliers are the same and some services carry potentially greater risks than others so the degree of assurance required may be greater.
