Trust but Verify: How to Protect Your Organization from Third-Party Security Breaches


  • Gerry Blass, President and CEO of ComplyAssistant
  • Robert (Bob) Babin, Director, Strategic Initiatives/Chief Information Security Officer at Saint Peter’s Healthcare System


Summary: In today’s global economy and highly connected system of networks, we are susceptible to any attacker from any country who has a digital path right to our doorsteps. We need to work even harder to protect information that could be exposed online. That includes how we interact with third-party vendors and business associates who are obligated to safeguard our data.

Before the digital evolution of healthcare, partnerships with vendors were based on a handshake. In 2018, an astounding 20% of healthcare data breaches occur from third-party vendors. Though we have complicated business associate agreements (BAAs), which are in part meant to hold third parties accountable for how they use, store and share protected information, even BAAs are simply a piece of paper.

This presentation will offer new insights on how to think more broadly about vendor risk management, what types of data need to be protected, the types of business partners you should have agreements with, and how to build a resourced governance process that could save your organization from disastrous consequences if and when a breach does occur.
