Two Day Managing Vendor Risk Course: The Cybersecurity Perspective (Minneapolis, United States – June 22nd-23rd, 2017) – Research and Markets


DUBLIN, June 13, 2017

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Managing Vendor Risk: The Cybersecurity Perspective” conference to their offering.

When companies outsource technology and security solutions, the question on everyone’s mind is: When does our liability for a cyber-attack end, and my vendor’s begin?

This course offers a unique opportunity for attendees to develop critical risk management skills to apply immediately upon returning to the office. This is a fast-paced, highly interactive workshop where attendees will develop a risk profile and risk management strategy using one of their own current or future vendors of choice.

Vendor risk management and due diligence is something every organization should perform carefully, and there are a number of unique issues when considering the inherent risks associated with technology and security providers.

The benefits of outsourcing are attractive for many reasons, but you need to ask yourself: Can you stake your organization’s well-being and financial stability on a vendor?

If you answered no, then join us to discover:

– Weighing vendor risk and classifying critical / high risk vendors
– Imperative questions you need to ask your vendors
– Documentation to gather when outsourcing your technology and/or security solutions
