Third-Party Risk Management

 Detect Risks, Plug the Gaps with 
Third-Party Risk Assessment Solutions

Every third-party relationship adds a layer of complexity and potential risk to your organization. Third-party risk refers to the potential negative impacts your organization faces by relying on external vendors, suppliers, partners, or service providers. 

A third-party risk assessment analyzes the risks these relationships introduce to your business along the supply chain.

Third-party threats can include

1.

Data Breaches
Third parties with access to your data are potential entry points for hackers. A breach can expose sensitive information and damage your reputation.

2.

Operational Disruption
If a critical third party fails, your operations can grind to a halt. Downtime and lost productivity can severely impact your business.

3.

Financial Losses
Fraudulent activities by third parties or contractual disputes can lead to financial losses.

4.

Reputational Damage
Associations with unethical or compromised third parties can harm your brand image and customer trust.

5.

Regulatory & Compliance Issues
Failure to comply with regulations due to negligent third-party practices can lead to hefty fines and penalties.

6.

Legal Liability

You may be held liable for the actions of your third parties, even if they are unintentional.

Effectively managing these risks is crucial for protecting your business and ensuring its smooth operation.

At KomodoSec, our Third-Party Risk Management Services can help you mitigate these threats effectively. Whether you're managing a sprawling web of vendors or just starting to build your ecosystem, our TPRM services model is tailored to help you navigate the third-party landscape with confidence.

Understanding the
Customer’s Requirements

Every activity begins with understanding the customer’s needs. Then we tailor our assessment to meet your requirements’ metrics and service levels and the agreed processes. 

Security Questionnaire
Review

When considering new vendors, they must complete a short questionnaire. Our cyber security consultant will analyze the vendor’s responses to detect security-related gaps, pitfalls, and compliance issues.

Scanning

Our team will scan the third-party vendor’s exposed assets with dedicated tools to detect potential risks and attack vectors. The team then eliminates false-positive results and investigates the risks that may  threaten the customer’s integration process and data. We use standard tools such as Panorays to handle the process.

Komodo will performan integration analysis  with all the relevant parties. We will  discuss the integration process, architecture, and technologies. We will also discuss potential security gaps and findings identified during the previous procedures, understanding that each integration and data flow is unique and exposes the customer to different risks. 

At the end of the security assessment, the team will formulate a report documenting the main findings and gaps discovered while focusing on the integration process between the customer and the third-party vendor. The final report summarizes the third-party's security maturity, further recommends how well this supplier fits the customer's requirements and informs if we approve or not.
