Three Keys to Mature Vendor Security Risk Management Programs
Cliff Baker (CORL Technologies) & Stephen Dunkle (Geisinger Health System) 

Learn about key trends and critical elements for maturing a vendor security risk management program. Cliff and Stephen will offer an overview of these basic steps for Maturing Vendor Risk Management in Healthcare: 1) Determine what the organization needs/desires for a successful VSRM program, 2) Design the program - governance, process, technology, and ability to sustain, and 3) Implement and continue to improve. They will also discuss industry trends, including:

• Third-party data risk is on the rise in the U.S. firms, with an estimated 61% experiencing a breach caused by 3rd parties, which is up from the previous year.
 Organizations continue to lack visibility into the number of third parties (Nth parties, etc.) they are sharing sensitive information with. Only 34% have a comprehensive inventory of all third-parties. (Source: Ponemon Institute.)
 In healthcare settings, risk tiering techniques reveal specific ‘vendor types’ that present a greater data security than others, which can streamline vendor security risk management. (Source: CORL Technologies data).
