Third Parties: A Gateway for Opportunity and Cyber Threats
Today, third-party relationships are a business necessity. But while they open your organization to new efficiency and specialized skills, they also open the gateway to significant risk. Attackers frequently use trusted third parties as an initial entry point to target the more robust organizations they serve through the exploitation of vulnerabilities within their third-party infrastructure, or systems and code they have supplied. Once they’re inside, the attackers often can move laterally and potentially gain access to any data, systems, and networks you’ve shared. They can then carry out a devastating cyber incident upon your organization through installing malware or exploiting your data for financial gain.
With costly consequences, such as potential legal fees, business stoppages, the erosion of stakeholder trust, and a critical loss in revenue, blindly trusting in the patching policies of your third parties is not good enough. You must stay alert and take action to ensure your organization is protected and Intel 471 can help you.
