  • Doing Risk Assessments Right

    Most organisations follow a sample based approach to identifying risk or gaining assurance for reasons of cost and practicality. Risk Assessments are already widely used and accepted as a method for risk identification and assurance and can be an extremely powerful and cost effective tool when done right and an utterly useless tool if done wrong. Consider the global practice of filing tax returns as a highly effective way of getting billions of people to declare their income and deductibles through a self assessment process. The previous Safe Harbor scheme, on the other hand, is an example of applying self assessments without any controls or meaningful oversight and using self assessments very poorly.

    Effective vendor governance can be like the proverbial needle in the haystack. You need to assess the entire haystack to identify the key risk “needles” that are threatening your confidential information assets. German privacy laws require the assessment of all vendors processing personally identifiable information, but implementing effective vendor governance using conventional solutions proves extremely expensive. The challenge remains to identify the key risk vendors and suppliers cost efficiently.

    Alyne provides predefined assessments for identifying high risk vendors and documenting outcomes with legally required diligence. Alyne assessments are highly scalable and allow you to digitalise and commoditise your vendor governance and supplier risk management within minutes.

    Effektives Vendorenmanagement ist wie das Suchen der sprichwörtlichen Nadel im Heuhaufen. Sie müssen den gesamten Heuhaufen überprüfen, um Ihre risikobehafteten “Nadeln” unter Ihren Vendoren zu identifizieren, welche Ihre vertraulichen Daten gefährden. Die Überprüfung aller Auftragsverarbeiter ist nach dem Bundesdatenschutzgesetz für Organisationen in Deutschland verpflichtend, aber die praktische Umsetzung mit bisherigen Mitteln ist sehr kostenintensiv. Die wirksame Identifikation der risikobehafteten Vendoren bleibt herausfordernd.
