Supplier Audits (2nd Party Audits)

Why do you need 2nd Party Audits?

Working with service providers can potentially have a negative impact on your company's information security. Remote access to the company's own systems is often permitted without defining prior rules for handling. It is also often not checked whether the service provider's systems are at all suitable in terms of information security.

In addition, service providers are often in possession of administrative rights or even permanent access to data of their clients and their customers. Uncontrolled data leakage, data manipulation or even deletion can be the result. Perhaps you are already aware of these dangers, but you do not want to perform the verification of your service providers yourself and outsource it.

What is the process of a 2nd Party Audit? 

Based on your goals and the audit program, we take over the auditing of your service providers. If desired, this can be done on-site or remotely. We document the results and draw up a list of recommendations for improving information security.
