In January 2019, eSentire commissioned Spiceworks to conduct an online survey of 600 information technology and security decision makers in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland and Scotland with purchase influence over security solutions and familiarity with third-party risk. The intent was to capture current practices, to understand current business operations with third parties, types of data shared with vendors, and potential security practices/policies already in place. The survey aimed to quantify market concerns about third-party risk, determine top challenges, and identify potential areas of vulnerability. Subsequently, our goal is to ultimately provide quantitative and contextual measures by which your organization can compare current practices and investment to help mitigate third-party risk.
