These key steps provide guidance that enterprises can swiftly implement to simply and cost-effectively meet regulatory requirements, establish a third-party governance framework and protect their critical assets.

The whitepaper also offers insights on how to:

  • Mitigate risk from commercial software, outsourced development, and contracted software for both internal and web-facing applications
