Outsourcing Your Cybersecurity Program: Managing Vendor Relationships


All parts of any organization or company are exposed to potential data breaches and hackers in today’s technology- and data-dependent world.  It is up to you to protect your customers’ information; however, internal resources can often be stretched and insufficient to protect from the greatest threats.  The solution is to find an outside partner to help develop your data breach protection and response programs; however, outsourcing can create some unique issues.

Join us for this 60-minute program to learn how to manage your relationships with vendors that are assisting you with your data breach governance program.  Our panelists will discuss how to create and negotiate effective contractual agreements with vendors; liability issues that can arise in the cybersecurity context when outsourcing your data breach response plan; and the insurance implications of working with a vendor.

Educational Objectives:

  • How to create and navigate contracts with vendors
  • What liabilities can arise when outsourcing a cybersecurity plan, including a discussion of insurance implications
  • How to maintain effective and valuable relationships with vendors when outsourcing a data governance program
