“Data Privacy and Security Issues in Vendor/Clients Relationships”
Most companies have relationships with multiple vendors, some of which have access to the company's data and systems. Evaluating a vendor's security measures (and gaps between their data security standards and the company's specific requirements), and ensuring they comply with applicable laws and industry standards, can be challenging. From a vendor perspective, how to untangle the web of customer- specific requirements and demands for compliance with the applicable standards? Financial institutions that are subject to GLBA and covered entities and their service providers under HIPAA/HITECH are subject to compliance with complex regulatory requirements for not only their own family of companies but are now required to ensure that all of their service providers and subcontractors are compliant with the prevailing regulations. We will discuss privacy regulations, industry best practices, contractual obligations, and audit standards companies can use to successfully manage numerous outside vendor relationships in this demanding regulatory regime. Target's security breach is rumored to have occurred from an HVAC vendor... it is crucial to know your vendors and manage them carefully!
