Cabela's Uses BitSight to Help Its Vendor Risk Management Team Reduce Cybersecurity Risks

Cabela's uses BitSight Security Ratings to independently verify the security performance of any vendor and measure their performance before starting a security assessment.

Cabela's, one of the largest retailers of hunting, fishing, and outdoor gear in the world, was tasked with assessing the cybersecurity posture of all of its critical third parties. As the company continued to expand and its number of vendors continued to grow, its vendor risk management team needed a better way to understand the cybersecurity posture of potential vendors, especially those providing critical services.

Using BitSight, Cabela's has been able to:

  • Elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of vendor security assessments
  • Continuously monitor any third party’s cybersecurity and identify changes in their performance
  • Compare its cybersecurity effectiveness against other retailers
  • Enable vendors to access their own security rating, which helps drive cybersecurity conversations with vendors
