Trending issues in third-party security

KPMG hosted a recent third-party security roundtable where we heard from a diverse group of cyber leaders. Some themes that emerged from this discussion included:

  • Emerging cracks in traditional approaches to third-party security
  • More interest by regulators on how organizations manage third-party security
  • Diverging risk management approaches between regulated organizations and third parties
  • Unresolved tensions between businesses and their third-party security programs
  • Lack of a “one-stop shop” to assess the current maturity of utilities
  • Incorporating threat intelligence into third-party security programs
