Gartner released their Critical Capabilities for IT Vendor Risk Management report in November 2018, and among several key takeaways, a number of points stood out to me: 1) the market is in its early stages of maturity; and 2) the offerings are generally fragmented and unable to deliver a combination of complete visibility and automation required to lower risk and achieve compliance goals.
With an ever-increasing number of cyber-attacks originating from third parties, and growing data privacy concerns driving more regulatory activity, ensuring your suppliers manage information securely is a significant challenge. An effective program will survey each third party, determine their risk level, prioritize the highest-risk vendors, manage them to remediate risks, and provide audit reports for stakeholders. Done manually, this can be enormously time-consuming.
The critical question for you to answer, however, is: Can your organization afford the potential fines, fall-out from failed audits, implications of non-compliance, and potential loss of reputation and revenue, if you’re only seeing a partial view of your vendor risks?

Together, those two inputs yield significant business outcomes:
