From GDPR to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, vendor risk management is a key component of every new piece of cybersecurity guidance. Yet, security leaders still struggle to inventory and assess their strategic partners. Sam Kassoumeh of SecurityScorecard explores the challenges.

In an interview at Information Security Media Group’s recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Kassoumeh discusses:

  • Why organizations struggle with vendor risk management;
  • How cloud computing only increases the complexity of the challenge;
  • The role vendor ratings and ongoing assessment can play in a vendor risk strategy.
