Overview

Many recent breaches have exploited security weaknesses in third party vendors and suppliers to attack business and government agencies. During this SANS What Works webinar, the Deputy CISO at Fannie Mae will detail his experience using Bit sight's service to assess the cybersecurity level of third party business partners and vendors, as well as using BitSight for ongoing monitoring of externally visible signs of lapses in security levels.

The webinar will contain a discussion of lessons learned and best practices as well as detail the metrics used to demonstrate the business value gained by a repeatable and ongoing approach for monitoring third party security levels.
