The Anatomy of a Third-Party Data Breach: The Importance of a Vendor Access Management Platform

More often than not, your company’s cybersecurity policy revolves heavily on internal employees, their access, and the rules around what’s okay and what isn’t.

In order for your company’s cybersecurity strategy to be well-rounded, it should include a vendor access management platform.
