Business Partner Security Assessment

Challenge

Many businesses thrive on partnerships as a part of their core business model, but partnerships can create security issues and compliance problems. From a security perspective, we are only as secure as our weakest link, and unfortunately, business partners often create that weakness. Businesses must take action to ensure compliance in their dealings with partners, subsidiaries, service providers, affiliates from mergers or acquisitions, and "remote affiliates." Many businesses are not sure where to start and a lack of resources means they cannot maintain complete audit readiness.

Solution

Secure Application's team of security and risk management experts evaluate security risks from relationships with all business partners; service providers, subsidiaries, and affiliations resulting from mergers or acquisitions. The resulting, comprehensive security assessment, results from a thorough understanding of the relationship with the partner, specifically as it relates to your regulatory and internal compliance requirements.
