Managing Cyber Risk Across Your Extended Vendor Ecosystem

Inevitably, the number of vendors at your organization will continue to grow as it does – supporting new persona, departments, and projects. Guess what gets even harder? Monitoring the risk of all of these vendors, which becomes a reflection on you.

To support these facts, BlueVoyant commissioned its second annual survey on the matter. We surveyed 1,200 CIOs, CISOs, and CPOs (Chief Procurement Officers) responsible for supply chain and cyber risk management in larger organizations worldwide.

Here’s just a few of our key findings:

  • 93% of companies have suffered a cybersecurity breach because of weaknesses in their supply chain/third-party vendors
  • 97% of companies have been negatively impacted by a cybersecurity breach that occurred in their supply chain
  • The average number of breaches experienced in the last 12 months grew moderately since last year (from 2.7 to 3.7), a 37% year-over-year increase
