The rise of breaches caused by third-party vendors reached an all-time high in 2018. This has driven organizations to take a much closer look at supplier and contractor security controls, as well as risk exposure throughout the delivery supply chain. According to a survey conducted last year by the Ponemon Institute, the average organization has 583 third-party vendors with access to sensitive data within their network. This level of interconnection resulted in 59 percent of organizations having experienced a breach caused by one of their vendors.
