Vendor Risk Management

A comprehensive solution for continuous vendor risk monitoring through granular, context-aware risk assessment, treatment and communication

Brinqa Vendor Risk Management implements a holistic approach with an emphasis on accuracy of risk identification and representation, to ensure all vendors and associated products and services are accounted for in context of their relationship with the organization and in context of their engagement impact and scope. Existing investments in Information security as well as commercial risk rating and exposure agencies are utilized to present a complete picture of the organization’s vendor risk.

Authoritative Vendor Inventory
Brinqa Vulnerability Risk Management tracks key KRIs, KPIs and program metrics to monitor risk-reduction, remediation time and window of opportunity. The self-service reports portal allows stakeholders to utilize report templates and create their own custom reports.
Dynamic Vendor Risk Profiles
A vendor’s risk profile takes into account inherent factors that reflect how the vendor’s organization is structured, how it does business, its perceived image in the public domain etc. A crucial factor in establishing risk profile and classification is the scope and impact of a vendor’s ongoing engagements within the organization. The solution also allows for strategic vendors to be flagged and handled with greater scrutiny.
Granular Engagement Risk Assessment
BTo create true representation of the risks associated with a vendor, in addition to evaluating the overall vendor relationship, the solution also quantifies the risks associated with each distinct vendor engagement within the organization. By evaluating individual vendor engagements for risks and corresponding mitigating controls, the solution provides complete transparency and visibility into the organization’s interactions with a vendor and ensures that vendors do not accidentally get access to information or infrastructure that they are not cleared for.
Integrated Security and Credit Ratings
The solution integrates with external sources of vendor evaluation (such as credit and security rating agencies) to provide a detailed and complete picture of the vendor’s risk profile.
Extensive Controls Framework
Brinqa Controls Framework, developed in collaboration with our technology and solution partners, and based on our years of experience helping large organizations navigate the complex Vendor Risk Management landscape provides risk professionals with a comprehensive framework. It provides granular control implementation definitions and correspondingly granular remediation options for identified risks. Brinqa controls framework provides mapping to common industry standards and frameworks like ISO, COBIT, NIST, etc.

Microsoft’s October 2021 Patch Tuesday included security fixes for 74 vulnerabilities, one of which is an actively exploited zero-day.

Apple on Monday rushed out a security update for iOS 15.0.2 and iPadOS 15.0.2 to fix a remote code-execution (RCE) zero-day vulnerability that’s being actively exploited.

Risk-based cybersecurity programs put an emphasis on quantifying risk based on targeted intersections of IT, Security, & Business data to address specific cybersecurity problems. The quantified risk measurements are then used as a primary driver for cybersecurity decision making.

Security researchers have disclosed a serious and wide-ranging API vulnerability stemming from the incorrect implementation of Elastic Stack, which could create serious business risk for customers.

An unpatched stored cross-site scripting (XSS) bug in Apple’s AirTag “Lost Mode” could open up users to a cornucopia of web-based attacks, including credential-harvesting, click-jacking, malware delivery, token theft and more.

Apple users should immediately update all their devices – iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple Watches – to install an emergency patch for a zero-click zero-day exploited by NSO Group to install spyware.

Google has addressed two zero-day security bugs that are being actively exploited in the wild. The two zero days are tracked as CVE-2021-30632 and CVE-2021-30633.

Both Microsoft and federal cybersecurity officials are urging organizations to use mitigations to combat a zero-day remote control execution (RCE) vulnerability in Windows that allows attackers to craft malicious Microsoft Office documents.

Cisco Systems released six security patches tied to its high-end 9000 series networking gear ranging in importance from critical, high and medium severity.

In the last half of 2020, 449 vulnerabilities were disclosed. During the first half of 2021, more than 600 ICS vulnerabilities were disclosed, impacting 76 vendors.
