Solving preventable data breaches with the right vendor management tool

  • Nearly two out of every three recent data breaches were attributable to a third-party vendor, and just about every single one was entirely preventable. And yet, the Ponemon Institute reports that only 16% of companies are effectively managing the risks associated with external vendors accessing internal resources.
  • If the American public was instead responsible for cleaning up the mess made by laissez-faire third-party security practices, each adult in the US, all 210 million of us, would have to pay $12.43 in restitution for a breach of privacy that we had nothing to do with.
