Modern enterprises outsource non-core processes and operations to business partners and vendors, and it is immensely important that a thorough risk assessment is performed of all control aspects and at all times — before the outsourcing and continuing risk assessments.
Regulators hold enterprises responsible for data leakages by business partners and vendors. Therefore, enterprises need to ensure that appropriate metrics for measurement of vendor and business partner performance is well laid out in the agreements with the vendors and business partners.
