HOU.SEC.CON is THE Houston-area information security conference. 

Today’s interconnected business landscape heavily relies on an extensive network of third-party suppliers, vendors, and service providers. While collecting comprehensive third-party risk questionnaires, it is vital to identify the critical suppliers indispensable to your organization and understand the potential impact of a cyberattack on their systems.

Despite regulatory requirements (e.g., CMMC, ISO 27001, GDPR, PCI, HIPAA), a growing number of companies have fallen victim to cyber incidents originating from their third-party suppliers. If you haven’t encountered such an incident yet, it’s crucial to recognize that it is only a matter of time. So, how can you proactively prepare for such an event?

During this presentation, speaker, Kyle Lai of KLC Consulting, leveraging his extensive experience as a CISO and security advisor in prominent defense, oil, energy, financial, and technology firms, will integrate real-world cybersecurity concerns into an effective third-party risk management (TPRM) program. Despite budgetary limitations, practical strategies for prioritizing risk and enhancing your organization’s security posture will be discussed.

This presentation is tailored for executives who possess a basic understanding of cybersecurity. Attendees will gain invaluable insights into fortifying their TPRM initiatives, enabling them to navigate the complex landscape of third-party risks and safeguard their organizations against potential cyber threats.
