Watch Now
Aravo SecurityScorecard

Cyber-risk and information security are considered by some to be the biggest challenge organizations collectively face today. A recent study conducted by Juniper Research predicts the cost of data breaches to reach $2.1 trillion globally by 2019. These incidents are very costly for organizations, distressing for consumers, and create the possibility of real systemic damage to whole industries; even nations. So, it’s hardly surprising that regulators and legislators around the world are moving into action. As third-party suppliers and partners increasingly grow as a vital part of an organization’s extended enterprise, they increase additional challenges to today’s risk management processes.
