THIRD-PARTY CYBER RISK

Protection From Third-Party and Supply Chain Risk

Organizations typically have multiple vendors and those vendors have vendors, which creates a hidden web of potential data risk. While you are responsible for your partners, you must also consider the risk brought on by external parties in your vendor ecosystem. eSentire helps assess your third-party risk, and offers 24/7 support for rapid threat detection, threat hunting and complete threat containment in minutes, before your business is disrupted.

How Do You Assess Vendor Risk Today?

For many organizations, cost-effective scalability means outsourcing some or all of your business functions to a complex web of third-party vendors.

Third-party cyber risk, also known as vendor risk, is about analyzing and controlling the fact that your data could be compromised by external vendors and service providers. When it comes to third-party cyber risk, you need to ask yourself:

  • Do I have formal procedures to manage the potential web of cyber risk that comes with outsourcing?
  • Have I thought about the supply chain in my vendors’ ecosystems and who else may have access to my data?
  • How am I ensuring my data is protected if one of my third-party vendors or supply chain partners is compromised?

The cost of a third-party vendor breach is not just measured in short-term financial loss and lost productivity, but also in long-term reputational damage and client churn.

The best way to protect your company from a devastating breach is to avoid one in the first place – conduct the due diligence needed and have the right protection in place.

How eSentire Protects Against Third-Party and Supply Chain Risk

We can help with third-party cyber risk due diligence with our Vendor Risk Assessments and provide ongoing 24/7 protection with eSentire Managed Detection and Response (MDR).

The Complexity of Supply Chain and Third-Party Cyber Risk

Companies increasingly use third-parties to scale their operations quickly and reduce costs. But, many of the organizations contracting third-parties don’t consider the data, operational, and financial risks. The heightened use of technologies such as IoT and mobile devices, and cloud platforms by vendors should make you question, “Where is my data and how can I protect it in someone else’s hands?”

Third-party or supply chain partners gain privileged access to your mission-critical IT environments and sensitive data. Read our guide for a condensed due diligence questionnaire to help you quantify these cyber risks.

The Kaseya Zero-Day Attacks

Watch this video with one of eSentire’s Elite Threat Hunters, Spence Hutchinson, as he reviews the Kaseya VSA supply chain attacks. Spence outlines how eSentire’s Security Operations Center (SOC) & Threat Response Unit (TRU) were able to quickly respond on our customer’s behalf and notify Kaseya of the breaches.

In these 2018 and 2021 attacks, threat actors leveraged zero-day vulnerabilities to push Cryptomining malware and Ransomware to Kaseya VSA customers. Our BlueSteel Machine Learning Engine identified malicious Powershell commands being executed. eSentire’s actions to detect, respond and remediate these attacks demonstrate the importance of MDR services that go beyond alerting and host isolation to deliver complete & robust response.

CASE STUDY

Fraudulent Transaction Illuminates Third-Party Risk

eSentire was engaged by a financial services firm to conduct third-party risk assessments because the firm had experienced a failed audit due to the discovery of a fraudulent transaction from a compromised third party.

Realizing the potential implications of a repeat issue and that they may already be compromised by another vendor, the client contracted eSentire’s Virtual CISO services, specifically a Third-Party Risk Assessment.

CASE STUDY

Third-party serves as staging point for cryptojacking attack using Powershell

eSentire observed an unknown threat actor attempting to deploy Monero cryptocurrency mining malware to multiple customers. This increasingly common type of attack known as “cryptojacking” allows a hacker to leverage the compute power of devices on a personal or corporate network to mine cryptocurrencies, unbeknownst to the victim.

Following an investigation from eSentire’s SOC, it was determined that the threat actor was leveraging a previously unknown vulnerability (zero-day exploit) in Kaseya’s Virtual Systems Administrator (VSA) agent as a vector to gain access to the clients’ network.
