A tremendous shout-out to Security Weekly’s Matt Alderman, Paul Asadoorian, and Jason Albuquerque for hosting our own Tony Howlett, CISO for SecureLink, as a guest this week to discuss third-party risk.
In addition to the unique and entertaining interview style (complete with cigar smoke and professional banter), there was a serious and informative discussion around security threats caused by privileged user access and the unique risks that vendors present.
IT and data breaches are going up every year and a large portion of them involve vendors or other third parties with access to enterprise networks and systems. Mr. Howlett will review the current state, examine a couple of high profile vendor-related breaches for lessons learned and talk about best practices to limit third party risk.
It was a super session and we appreciate shining a spotlight on critical security issues!
