Vendor Risk Management Solutions for Insurance

Reduce third-party vendor risk and simplify compliance reporting

Insurance companies are top-tier targets for cyber criminals because of their access to protected health information (PHI), personally identifiable information (PII), and financial information. However, recent breaches and ransomware incidents have shown that insurance companies not only need to be concerned with direct attacks, but also must understand the risks facing third-parties with access to their systems or data.

Complicating third-party risk management for insurance companies is meeting the requirements of multiple regulatory mandates and guidelines – such as HIPAA and CCPA – with each requiring controls over third-party access.

Prevalent automates third-party risk assessments, incorporating the latest real-time cyber, data privacy, business and financial insights to equip security and risk teams with the visibility they need to reduce risk and meet compliance requirements.
