SolarWinds was a stark reminder that our ecosystems and risks are intertwined. As the world continues to adopt to digital transformation, our reliance on third parties like cloud providers and other vendors is only increasing. And when one of our vendors is exposed or vulnerable, so are we. The only way to address this risk is by working together as a community to reduce third-party cyber risk, and that requires standardized approaches, data and sharing initiatives. Join this session to learn more about:

  •    A breakdown of the SolarWinds breach
  •    The role Third-Party Risk Management plays in supply chain security
  •    Steps you can take to optimize or build your TPCRM program today
