Fortify Your Security Posture Against Insider Threats
Secure Your Data and Avoid Insider Incidents
While the number of cyberattacks and their sophistication continue to grow, organizations should pay close attention to insider threats. Because insider threats originate from within an organization and since insiders have the trust and knowledge of infrastructure systems and data assets as well as authorized access to both, these threats are often the hardest to detect and prevent.
Achieving Supply Chain Compliance
INTERNAL AUDIT AND BUSINESS IMPACT ANALYSIS
UPDATE CONTRACTS AND AGREEMENTS
Update all contracts or agreements with necessary compliance and ethics factors and precedents, including specific details for necessary regulations or security controls. These should ensure that your organization’s stance on compliance is clear throughout your supply chain and customers alike.
DUE DILIGENCE VETTING AND ONBOARDING
VISIBILITY, COLLABORATION AND DATA INTEGRITY
Collaboration is only effective if there is a common data structure or standard throughout your suppliers and vendors, enabling visibility and confidence that all data is accurate and up to date. Working together with your supply chain on a universal data structure is an important component of an effective compliance and risk management strategy.
ESTABLISH AUDITING AND MONITORING PROTOCOLS
In order to fully perform your due diligence, you need to have a process and protocol that include regular risk assessments and contract audits to ensure adherence to contractual requirements. Ensure that strict recordkeeping and notification factors are available upon request.
Regardless of whether a compliance issue is an internal fault of your company, or it originates from one of your supply-chain vendors, non-compliance can damage your company’s brand reputation, lead to disruption, delays and downtime or result in costly regulatory penalties and disastrous consequences.
