Expose Your Weakest Links.
Defend Your Business Against Risk.

More than half of all breaches result from third-party vendors. It’s imperative to use a vendor risk management (VRM) tool to identify your vendors and determine their level of risk to your organization. SecurityStudio’s S2VENDOR –now available through FRG– is a SaaS tool that allows you to pinpoint the vendors that present the most risk to your organization.

Armed with a standardized, risk-based scoring methodology coupled with a built-in remediation plan, SecurityStudio® helps your vendors correct any security issues that arise in order to help protect their organization and yours.

How SecurityStudio® Works

How, exactly, does an organization assess their cyber security risk? Take the guesswork out of the equation and use the standardized methodology of SecurityStudio’s S2VENDOR module –which results in a measurable cyber security score.

Step One: Inventory

Every vendor that the organization does business with must be included in the third-party inventory to show due diligence.

Step Two: Classification

Capture the vendor’s scope of services and establish their level of inherent risk. Results in a low-, medium- or high-risk rating.

Step Three: Assessment

Medium- and high-risk vendors complete an S2ORG assessment resulting in a score from 300 to 850. Low-risk vendors are re-evaluated the following year.

Step Four: Treatment

Based on the score, accept, remediate or avoid the vendor. For those that need remediation, S2VENDOR renders an Action Plan with specific recommendations.

SecurityStudio® provides an intuitive interface that makes the process easy and organized –with a dashboard that provides progress and S2 Score data at-a-glance.

“…a very common sense approach to risk assessment. It uses a comprehensive methodology that produces a very thorough report. I’m very impressed with how easy it is to use yet so powerful.”
