Associated with  Ireland Chapter

ISACA Ireland - Mid-West Conference - Limerick - First Party risk – OK, but Third and Fourth Party Risk – Who’s taking care of that?

ISACA Ireland Chapter is pleased to announce a full one-day Regional Conference following on from the success of previous Regional events in Letterkenny (North West Conference) and Cork (South West Conference)

The 2013 Target data breach, which began at an air conditioning subcontractor, is a well known example of a third party risk becoming reality. More third party breaches are being discovered than ever before. It's no longer enough to simply ensure that an organization's systems are secure. The now ubiquitous GDPR may allow the sharing of responsibility but not ultimate accountability.

A risk management program needs to look beyond the perimeter of an organization to properly vet the third and fourth-party vendors who will have access to data without being subject to an organisations internal risk management process. The use of third parties in a supply chain or for data handling creates potential risks that can be compounded by third-party weaknesses should they exist.

The discipline of third-party risk management (or TPRM) has evolved to help manage this new type of risk exposure. This conference will hope to raise some awareness of these risks and enlighten attendees as to how to address them.

Who should attend:

IT Managers, Vendor Managers, Vendors, Risk and Compliance professionals and advisors, Procurement Managers and anyone concerned with the risks that can arise from Third Party dependencies.

The topics and speakers are being finalized and attendees will be updated as the day's program takes shape.

Engaging with 3rd parties service providers that host and secure line of business application, and collaboration and productivity ICT services, has many advantages.

This presentation explores the difficulties for organisations to understand, govern and mitigate cyber threats in these environments.
