For example, when vetting third-party vendors, imagine having a dynamic assessment tool that not only measures the baseline but also validates vendor responses with objective data and continually tracks performance. This empowers organizations to save time that would otherwise be spent on manual assessments.
With Bitsight, integrated cyber risk management means end-to-end solutions to effectively manage and communicate risk—both within your company and across your third-party ecosystem, including key capabilities:
Let’s look at the three main benefits of Bitsight’s approach to integrated, consolidated cyber risk management solutions:
1. Consistent and connected data points
Data is the cornerstone of informed decision-making. By consolidating data points and insights across Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) and Security Performance Management (SPM) for your own organization, you ensure consistency in the information you analyze. No longer do you need to juggle disparate sources of data that might provide conflicting insights. Instead, you have a harmonized repository where vendor risk assessments, security ratings, vulnerability detection and response efforts, exposure management, and performance metrics are integrated seamlessly.
The power of consistency lies in its ability to enable accurate comparisons and comprehensive evaluations. When evaluating vendor risks or gauging your organization's security performance, having a cohesive dataset ensures that you're working with a complete picture. Inconsistencies and blind spots are minimized, leading to better-informed decisions and more effective risk mitigation strategies.
2. Single Source of Support
Navigating the complexities of cybersecurity can often feel like a maze. With multiple point products, you're not just managing security threats but also wrangling with different providers for support and assistance. This fragmented approach can lead to inefficiencies, miscommunications, and delayed responses when issues arise.
By adopting a unified cyber risk management solution, you gain the advantage of a single source of support. You're not dealing with a patchwork of providers; instead, you have a dedicated team that understands the intricacies of your program. This streamlines your troubleshooting process, expedites issue resolution, and ensures a consistent quality of service. From addressing technical glitches to seeking guidance on cybersecurity best practices, having a single point of contact simplifies your experience and maximizes the effectiveness of your security strategy.
3. Procurement Ease
Sourcing, evaluating, acquiring, and managing various point products can be a logistical challenge. Each product might come with its own procurement process, pricing negotiations, contracts, and renewals. This not only consumes valuable time and resources but can also lead to inconsistencies in vendor relationships and costs.
Embracing a unified solution like Bitsight streamlines the procurement process. Rather than dealing with multiple vendors, negotiations, and contracts, you have a consolidated agreement that covers a wide spectrum of cyber risk management capabilities. This not only saves time but also provides leverage in negotiations, potentially yielding cost savings. Additionally, the simplicity of dealing with a single vendor relationship enhances transparency and fosters a collaborative partnership.
