Cyber Howard

In today’s digital age, making informed decisions about IT products and services is more crucial than ever. Ensuring that third-party vendors are trustworthy and won’t expose operations to undue information security risks is a top priority for businesses. Yet, the lack of standardization in vendor management programs has led to unnecessary delays, increased costs, and limited effectiveness in risk management.
