Now that we have identified the issues to watch out for, we can share what you can do to triage risks and develop your 3rd Party GRC Solution.
Let’s Reassess How You Think About 3rd Party Assessments!
Caveat: We can’t possibly provide a complete 3rd Party consulting framework in a short blog. This post is to provide you with a new framework for 3rd Party risk and new thinking in assessments.
First, let’s clearly define what a 3rd Party is. We believe they encompass all of the following: suppliers, 3rd Party agents, contractors, distribution centers, call centers, contract manufacturers or assemblers, outsourcing firms, service providers (SaaS, Cloud, and a thousand more).
Last week, we discussed the two strategy pitfalls companies face when they realize that they have regulations, laws, and certifications they need to be in compliance with. This post dives deeper into what companies experience when they go down this path.
We are celebrating, Application Security and Compliance Analyst, Bryan Urias' one year anniversary with JustProtect!
Who is the real you?
What may seem like a serendipitous entry into cyber security and risk assessment is the reality for Bryan Urias and his journey with JustProtect. Bryan connected with Embarc Collective, who acted as a pipeline for local businesses and his university, Florida Poly. That’s how he met Vikas Bhatia, JustProtect’s Founder and CEO, one year ago.
Many companies start assessing innocently enough in order to respond to government and/or industry regulations, laws, and certifications with all the right intentions. They want to be in compliance, protect their business, and hopefully use these as differentiators in the market.
“My father used to have an Attarr (natural perfume oil) shop”, Nanny recalled. She raised me on tales of how she, as a little girl she was allowed to be in her father’s shop to help with customers and even listen in on business meetings. When I questioned how she learned English, she told my sister and me that she taught students English in a local college. We didn’t question these stories; however, they seem extremely progressive for a pre-partition 1930’s India.
JustProtect would like to wish you and yours a safe and comfortable Thanksgiving.
We couldn't be more ecstatic and elated to announce that JustProtect has officially won the Tampa Bay Inno award for Cybersecurity blazer!
