Event description

Description

To stay competitive and focus on business goals, it is common practice for a business to utilize third-party solutions for non-core business activities. However, the proliferation of SaaS providers offering low-cost and easy-to-adopt technology solutions can cause a business to unintentionally suffer from vendor sprawl.

The impact of a third-party solution to a business’s security posture cannot be understated. Numerous security breaches can be attributed to weaknesses introduced using third-party solution. The use of third-party solutions can have an unintended impact to a business’s cyber-security ecosystem.

Likewise, federal and state regulators are increasingly focusing on third-party technology vendors and the part they play in cybersecurity programs, creating additional regulatory risk for businesses. Proper management and monitoring of third-parties are an essential security control for today’s modern business.

We will explore topics such as third-party risk best practices, shadow IT management, vendor contracts, and impact of regulatory requirements.

This panel and networking event are hosted and organized by leading IT Services provider Optimum Partners DWC LLC, leading law firm Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP, cyber-security consultancy Radical Security and IT infrastructure management firm Cynertek Solutions.

Join us to learn more about today’s expanded cyber-security ecosystem and enjoy the opportunity to socialize and network with other like-minded technology and business leaders.

At the end of the panel session participants will be able to network and socialize over drinks and an outstanding and innovative experiential dining experience provided by exceptional experiential catering and dining operator Komeeda which we believe will raise the bar of tech meetups catering in NYC!

The panel of subject matter experts include:
