SolarWinds. Accellion. Microsoft Exchange Server. There seems to be a new supply chain data breach popping up in the news every day. But despite the frequency and impact of these breaches, many organizations still struggle to get timely notifications from their vendors. Why? To start, many security and risk management teams rely on antiquated, spreadsheet-based assessment methods that add unnecessary complexity – and time – to the incident response process. Others use simple breach monitoring tools that can only flag a potential event without offering any analysis of what it means to the business.

Delays in getting the right information can ultimately lead to unwanted exposure, fines or worse for your company. So, how do you keep the board off your back without crushing your team with unplanned incident response assessments?
