Because Small Vendors Pose A Big Risk
DatumSec Cyber Risk Assessments for Your SMB Vendors
Why does assessing the cyber risk of your small and medium-sized vendors require a different approach?
Because they rarely have the manpower, expertise, or budget to establish and maintain a baseline of security. Your SMB vendors have as much risk as your large vendors - often more so. Hackers know this, and they are leveraging these security gaps to attack SMBs. In fact, over 50% of SMBs reported a breach in the past 12 months.* And those breaches can lead directly to your company's data.
Managing third-party risk does not come in a one-size-fits-all package. A security questionnaire designed for your largest vendors does not take into consideration the very different infrastructure of a small or medium-sized vendor. Therefore, the ability to validate and verify the information provided by SMB vendors in their cyber risk assessments becomes critical.
