STACK AND RACK YOUR VENDORS
Before going into the details on vendors, take some time evaluating how vendors communicate with you. This gives an idea of what your potential data security disclosure is for each one.
There is definitely a huge difference between the security risks related with the vendor who is replenishing your coffee room in comparison to the vendor who is controlling your firewall remotely.
In order to prioritize your data security susceptibility hazards you should make sure you aren’t sharing your confidential or customer information with the vendor and if you are you should make sure that information is subject to industry or federal regulations.
