Vendors such as Business Associates are one of the major sources of data breach.

These vendors are beyond your direct oversight and governance. This increases your vendor-related risks from rising security threats and regulatory penalties.

ecfirst has client-endorsed capabilities to support your requirements for :

  •  Vendor compliance and security assessment
  •  Security planning and gap remediation
  •  Vendor certifications and training


  • Business Impact Assessment (BIA)

    A thorough review of vendor capabilities, policies and procedures with relevance to your own business requirements. How the vendor controls and manages the information provided is part of a business impact analysis.
  • Vendor Security Assessment

  • Offshore Vendor Assessment

    As a company with global resources, ecfirst is able to provide onsite vendor assessments for evaluation as a supplier, and for other assessment processes that would benefit from direct onsite access.
