This data security and compliance methodology is based on examining third-party vendors against the development of a three dimensional risk based model.

The final deliverables of the risk impacts, findings, enterprise requirements, and remediation are presented quantitatively.

A number of professional surveys indicated that information technology and security managers, directors and executives reported significant data breaches linked directly or indirectly to third-party access.

Unfortunately, these security breaches are trending upwards.   In addition, there is an absence of a structured and quantifiable methodology to measure the third-party risks on an enterprise, as well as what are the expected requirements from the third-party to substantiate the evidence that sound risk management practices are in place.

Types of risk a third-party may have on an enterprise when third-parties store, access, transmit or perform business activities.

It represents a probable risk exposure for the enterprise. The degree of risk and the material effect are highly correlated with the sensitivity and the transaction volume of data.

Outsourcing certain activities to a third-party poses potential risk to the enterprise.

Some of those risk factors could have adverse impacts in the form of, but not limited to, strategic, reputational, financial, legal or information security issues. Other adverse impacts include service disruption and regulatory noncompliance.

Examples of third-parties’ services include, but are not limited to, technology service providers; payroll services; accounting firms; invoicing and collection agencies; benefits management companies; consulting, design and manufacturing companies.

Most third-party commercial relationships require sending and receiving information, accessing the enterprise networks and systems, and using the enterprise’s computing resources. The risk posed at different levels and the impacts range from low to very significant.

The ability to influence is one of the essential skills for leaders at all levels. It’s more art than science, and it can be tough to get your arms around.  But the bottom line is that influence matters.

Influence has countless benefits, and is a particularly valuable asset for career progression.

Influence is power. No matter who you are, where you work, or what your professional goals are, achieving more influence in the workplace is critical for success.

Gaining influence on a team can help you work together more effectively. Gaining influence in a supervisory position can make you more respected and appreciated.

Gaining influence in a meeting can make your voice more likely to be heard and acknowledged.

Successful influencing is about making a connection and appealing to the heart as well as the head.

It is about identifying personal triggers and adapting your style to others’ to get the best results from the people you are trying to influence.

A combination of communication and interpersonal skills will help you to get the results you need.

Join Shawn Stratton (LinkedIn profile)  as he covers some practical hints to help develop your powers of influencing whether you need a decision from your boss, an “awkward” peer to help you or a client to accept your new prices.
