{Special Report Hacker Hour} Poor Vendor Practices = Your Next Breach

{Special Report Hacker Hour} Poor Vendor Practices = Your Next Breach

Brian Krebs recently published an article sounding the alarm on security practices of third-party relationships that financial institutions depend on. As we all know vendor management is a challenge, and Krebs covers some great examples of how poor practices of your vendors can affect your security program, and potentially your reputation.

Join us to review this story and the challenges financial institutions face. There are many things we can do to improve our communications with our customers, strengthen vendor management programs, and reduce risks of sensitive information being disclosed in large data breaches like Equifax. 

This webinar will cover:

  • Overview of the Krebs Story
  • Big Beach Review, including Equifax's updated numbers
  • Additional real-world examples of questionable vendor practices
  • Improving vendor management processes
  • Ideas to create vendor accountability
  • Customer Communication

Read our take on Krebs' article in the blog post Sounding the Alarm on Poor Vendor Practices.

Hacker Hour webinars are a series of free webinars hosted by SBS CyberSecurity. Unlike paid webinars, Hacker Hours are aimed to meet on a monthly basis to discuss cybersecurity issues and trends in an open format. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and get their questions answered. SBS will also offer products and services to help financial institutions with these specific issues.
