All organizations, regardless of size, utilize third party providers to assist them in their day to day business operations. Now more than ever, organizations must conduct due diligence to ensure the providers they choose take security seriously and will do everything possible to protect sensitive information.

In today's business environment, time is money. In an effort to be more efficient and competitive, organizations of all sizes are using trusted third parties to perform daily tasks. Previously, IT departments were focused on their own network and mitigating risks of a data breach.
