Vendor Risk Management (VRM)

Protect your assets by assessing the risk your third party vendors pose to your supply chain.

What is Vendor Risk Management:

Many organisations use third party vendors in order to reduce their business costs and enhance operational efficiency. Vendor Risk Management is the process of evaluating the risk posture of these partners. This risk evaluation occurs both before the relationship is settled, and during the course of the contract. Vendor risk management is important because outsourcing work often requires sharing confidential data and information with a third party. Therefore, employing a vendor that lacks robust security controls could expose an organisation to operational, regulatory, financial, and reputational risks. As such, vetting and monitoring your vendors’ security is crucial in order to safeguard your company’s data and assets.

How Vendor Risk Management Works:

Mondas’ experienced and specialised consultants provide a huge range of VRM capabilities. They will evaluate your vendors to identify, manage and mitigate any risks they bring. To do so, they will undertake the following steps:

Pre-Contractual Assessment Mondas will conduct a comprehensive assessment of any potential third party vendors before you enter into a contract with them. This will ensure that you only partner with vendors fully understanding the risk they pose to your supply chain.

Risk Identification and Assessment Our team will monitor your vendors around the clock to ensure that any new vendor risks that arise will be identified, flagged, and assessed in real time. This will enable quick responses which minimise the impact of any security incidents.

Risk Mitigation and Remediation Depending on business preference, our analysts will either remediate the detected vulnerabilities for you, or direct your IT Team to redress these themselves. This will ensure that cybercriminals cannot exploit weaknesses in your supply chain as entry points.

Continuous Assessments Our service replaces the traditional method of completing lengthy questionnaires that assess an organisation’s risk. Instead, we use continuous automated assessments that can be run immediately and supplied within minutes.

Reports Our team will produce regular vendor risk management reports to ensure that you have complete visibility of the risks our analysts are identifying and protecting your business against, and the measures they are taking to do this.
