Vendor Risk Assessment

Identify Your Risk of a Third-Party Breach


of organizations revealed that they had experienced a Third-Party-related data breach in the last year1


of organizations cited lack of internal resources as a challenge in evaluating Third-Party vendors1


of organizations that experienced a third-party breach reported significant business consequences (reputational damage, discontinued business, financial loss)1

As ever-expanding digital networks necessitate expansion of third-party and vendor access to sensitive data, the old adage that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link has never been more relevant from a security perspective. In an unfortunate tradeoff, business enablement from third parties and vendors in turn present business risk. Lack of visibility and end-to-end control of vendor security practices increase the potential attack surface for which organizations must account. Unfortunately the scale and expertise required to assess potential third-party risk presents challenges for most organizations with resource constraints.

Based on the eSentire Security Framework that is built on the foundations of NIST, eSentire Vendor Risk Assessment is designed to help resource constrained organizations:

Factors Requiring a Vendor Risk Assessment:

What Does it Help You Answer?

  • What should my criteria be for assessing my third party partners and vendors against?
  • What questions do I ask to gather the right level of information?
  • How do I categorize my third parties and vendors against their potential to disrupt business?
  • Do my third party partners and vendors meet requisite security standards?
  • How effective are my current third-party risk policies and controls to mitigate against risk?
  • Who are my third party partners and vendors sharing my data with?
  • What measures do I require my third party partners and vendors to put in place that is balanced with their risk profile?
  • How do we track progress and improvement?
  • What controls should we put in place based on the assessment?
