An increasing number of data breaches begin with the compromise of a key vendor or business partner. This was evident with the spread of NotPetya ransomware this past June, which first emerged when the software update process of an accounting software provider in Ukraine was hijacked. This highlighted to the world the importance of updating systems within corporate networks to prevent susceptibility to breach.

With digital services being increasingly outsourced, reducing cyber risk posed from vendors and suppliers is more important than ever; it's critical that businesses develop and embrace a strong vendor risk management program.
