Data breaches are on the minds of every C-Suite executive in Healthcare. Third-Parties (i.e., vendors and business partners) with access to an organization’s Protected Health Information (PHI) and/or Personally Identifiable Information (PII) represent a significant risk due to the potential for data breaches. Until recently, Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) has been primarily treated as a compliance and contract approval “checkpoint”. Due to the significant growth in healthcare data breaches and the awareness of the risk posed by third-party security weaknesses, healthcare organizations have started implementing stronger TPRM programs that try to focus on uncovering true security weaknesses in the hopes of addressing this large-scale problem. However, most organizations struggle to assess their third-parties and vendors effectively, mostly through a patch-work of static forms, lengthy security questionnaires and haphazard email-based communication. Requests come from almost anywhere in the supply chain without consistent information and solid process.
