Service Provider Cybersecurity Assessment Program

Assessing Your Vendors’ Cybersecurity Risk

Some of the most publicized data breaches over the past few years have occurred via third parties. That is why proper oversight of your third-party service providers is an essential element of your organization’s cyber resilience strategy. You can outsource the function, but never the responsibility.

As external dependencies continue to grow, setting up and maintaining an effective cybersecurity review program can be a daunting task. Sage can assist with the implementation of a program that makes sense for your organization’s business needs and is tailored to the unique conditions that are the byproduct of every third-party business relationship.

Service Provider Cybersecurity Review Program Details

Service Provider Management Program Setup

We will work with you to create a vendor review decision tree, so each vendor is assessed according to the specific characteristics of their product or service and how they interact with sensitive information. Our specialized approach creates the most efficient review process — saving time while ensuring you are covered.

Documentation Collection and Service Provider Cybersecurity Review

We will collect the appropriate documentation from each vendor, and complete the required assessment — plus keep you up-to-date with regular status updates.

Reports and Recommendations

In addition to the vendor review decision tree and questionnaires, you will receive a cybersecurity evaluation report for each of your vendors which includes:

  • Assessment findings
  • Noted exceptions
  • Company obligations (responsibilities and recommended configuration settings)
Consistent reporting will make oversight and measurement easier for you.


The Sage Cybersecurity Lifecycle

The Sage Data Security Cybersecurity Lifecycle

Cybersecurity isn’t a destination.

There is no single, straight path that will get you to the point where you can say, “We did it! We’re 100% cyber-secure.”

A more realistic destination is cyber resiliency – the ability to prepare for and adapt to changing conditions, so you can withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions. Achieving cyber resilience depends on what we like to call the cybersecurity lifecycle – an ongoing cycle of interconnected elements that compliment and reinforce one another.
