Intelligence Driven Cyber Security Operations
Why Cyber security Due Diligence is Important ?
Cyber security due diligence is a thorough assessment conducted by organizations to evaluate the security posture and cybersecurity risks of potential third-party vendors or partners before entering into a business relationship. Its goal is to ensure that the third party has appropriate security measures in place to safeguard sensitive information, maintain data confidentiality, integrity, availability, and comply with relevant regulations and industry standards. This process is especially crucial when dealing with vendors who might have access to critical systems, data, or infrastructure.
