Third-Party Risk and Strategies for its Mitigation: How Threat Intel Can Help

Thursday, June 6, 2024

2:00 - 3:00 PM EST

60 minutes, including Q&A

Trends such as globalization and business processing outsourcing (BPO) have increased the complexity of supply chains, both the physical and digital variety. We now commonly speak of third- and fourth-party supplier relationships, with the potential for even greater degrees of capillarity if we dig deeper. From a security perspective, this spells a significant expansion in attack surfaces, as organizations have little or no control of governance levels two or three levels down the chain, and threat actors are aware of this situation.

This webinar will investigate strategies to address this situation, leveraging threat intelligence to mitigate the risk posed by third parties in your business value chain.

You will hear:

  • How attackers can compromise the systems of suppliers, partners, or contractors as on-ramps to those of larger organizations who may themselves be much more well protected.
  • How stealth attacks on the weakest link, even ones made on an opportunistic basis, can result in huge damages up the chain.
  • How gathering better threat intelligence can improve your chances of improving your third-party risk posture.
