If you’re not assessing your vendor’s business continuity program, you’re putting revenue at risk.
Assessing your ability to keep the doors open, and the revenue flowing, has become an important component in every company’s risk management program. Unfortunately, many business continuity programs are leaving out an important component when conducting a business impact analysis – by failing to fully consider the role that vendors play in the process.
Traditionally vendors have been assessed to insure that IT security and data protection controls are in place and properly executed. However, assessing the controls a vendor has in place to ensure their services continue to be delivered as needed by your business unit is essential. In fact, adding availability as a factor in determining which vendors require assessment has caused the list of “critical” vendors to expand.
Join us as we discuss the importance of including vendor availability in your vendor assessment program, and how it can be a critical component in your own company’s business continuity program.
