About the Program
Businesses invest substantial time and resources in protecting their information systems from intrusion and careless vulnerabilities.  But many fail to devote the same attention to insecurities created by allowing third party service providers access to their data and systems.  This presentation will identify the risks inherent in the necessary partnering with service providers; suggest a disciplined approach to managing those risks; and discuss steps businesses and individuals can take to implement that approach.
