You Can Trust Me: The Why, What, and How of Transparency in Third-Party Risk Management

In the world of software buyers and sellers, trust matters; 96% of cybersecurity leaders say they’re more likely to buy from vendors that are transparent about security posture. But actual vendor risk management—lengthy assessment questionnaires, layers of NDAs, superficial trust centers, endless back-and-forth—suggests that real trust is still elusive.

It doesn’t have to be this way. In this interactive webcast, Jack Rumsey, Head of Governance, Risk, and Compliance for Swimlane, and Jake Bernardes, CISO for Whistic, get to the bottom of the transparency gap between buyers and sellers in the TPRM process. They’ll tackle:

  • How vendors and buyers can achieve greater transparency without sacrificing security
  • What “trust” really means in practice and how to measure it
  • The impact of a trust-based approach to TPRM on business outcomes
