Enterprises globally recognize the challenge of third-party cyber risk, but they still struggle with the risk management. Dave Stapleton of CyberGRX discusses the elements of a mature program, including the role of risk ratings.

There are many reasons why enterprises struggle with third-party risk, says Stapleton, CISO at CyberGRX. And a big part of it is funding.

"A lot of people recognize that it's a must, but it's just not as sexy as some other cybersecurity issues," he says. "And I think it can be difficult to convince the executives or the boards to provide the funding that's needed to implement a truly mature program."

In an interview about growing a mature third-party cyber risk program, Stapleton discusses:

  • Where enterprises commonly struggle;
  • The role of risk-ratings services vs. validated inside out assessments;
  • The key elements for building a mature program.
