Business partners, and especially those partners with interconnected IT access, can present severe risks to organizations. Many compromises originate in partner networks or leverage access granted to trusted business partners. Adding additional dangers, today's outsourced service and cloud models make understanding the security postures of partners who process your data for you absolutely critical. A breach in any of these partner environments can directly damage your organization.
