Vendor Risk Management

Vendors: Your greatest IT security risk.

It’s one of the biggest ironies in business today: Your greatest IT security risks come from the very vendors you rely upon to support your day-to-day operations. Any third-party organization that is involved in key business processes such as accounting, financials, human resources, customer data or software represents a potential weakness in your organization’s cybersecurity posture.

A single, comprehensive platform for vendor management.

Vendor security grows more crucial by the day. However, many companies still struggle to identify, rank, assess and manage the threats posed by the hundreds – or even thousands – of vendors they engage.  At HORNE, we help you step away from disorganized spreadsheets, emails and processes and establish a comprehensive Vendor Risk Assessment and Management Program (VRAMP) via a single platform that identifies, monitors and manages vendors.

Read about our approach below.

Identification and Prioritization

When it comes to threats, not all vendors are created equal. We collaborate with you to classify vendors into specific tiers, according to the level of inherent risk they pose. From there, you can set appropriate standards for security and compliance and focus on the segments of your vendor network that represent the highest level of potential exposure.

L

Actionable Insights

Our findings are delivered in a detailed report that highlights gaps and potential areas of concern for each and every vendor. These reports serve as a foundation for opening dialogs with your vendors to ensure that your vendor ecosystem is secure and a source of strength.

IT Audit

Determine the security, compliance and operating effectiveness of your IT environment.

L

Risk Assessment and Evaluation

Once engaged, we provide clients with detailed vendor evaluations that capture a clear snapshot of their security policies, processes, systems and infrastructure. Our goal is never to disrupt existing vendor relationships; our primary objective is to provide transparency into your vendor network, and enable you to work with them to eliminate any vulnerabilities that may be exist.
