If you have not seen the invitation for our annual User Group meeting on May 3rd in Nashville, Tennessee, please let your VendorINSIGHT® Program Administrator know so that we can be sure that you have all the details. Based upon feedback from clients who attended the meeting in Baltimore last year, this meeting was well received and provided an excellent forum for idea sharing among VendorINSIGHT® peer users and the VendorINSIGHT® management staff.
One area within Vendor Risk Management that continues to garner attention from the news media and the Regulators is Cybersecurity practices. From the consulting side of our business, three articles have been published in the last six months with regards to providing insight and guidance on IT Risk Management practices specifically aimed at the non-technical executives, inclusive of recommended Cybersecurity training for directors and how to prepare and respond to a data seizure. These can be found at our CMPG website.
In our upcoming meeting, we currently plan to continue on the theme of Cybersecurity education with a presentation on the background and key tenants of Cyber Insurance policies. Please let VendorINSIGHT® know if this is a topic that rings true in your role as the gatekeepers for Vendor Risk Management. We hope to see you in Nashville!
