Third parties — whether traditional vendors, business partners or inter-affiliates — deliver important services that help healthcare organizations meet their business and clinical goals. But the convenience and flexibility of outsourcing third party services comes with significant cyber risks, including regulatory penalties for vendor related incidents.
To mitigate this risk, more and more security leader are turning to 3rd-party assurance programs. A sound third-party program can give you the peace of mind that the data and systems you entrust to third parties are maintained in a secure and complaint manner.
In this session, you learn how a third-party assurance plan can strengthen your security posture, and how to evaluate assurance programs and choose the one that best meets your needs.
