Vendor Management - Beyond the Paperwork

IAPP Europe Data Protection Congress 2021

16 Nov 2021 09:00 a.m. - 01:00 p.m.

Brussels, Belgium

Associate Ronan Tigner lead a workshop at the 2021 IAPP Europe Data Management Congress on November 16th, 2021.

How can you implement an effective vendor management programme? Let us take you through the lifecycle of a relationship with a vendor, from first talks to termination. We will review core issues that may arise and provide do’s [MN1] and don’ts through the customer’s perspective. Poor vendor security can be the weak link of customer security and subsequent enforcement, so while vendor management may seem ancillary in a privacy programme, its importance in risk and exposure should not be underrated. This session explores more than the vendor contract. You will hear about onboarding, security validation, in-term audit, technical or operational discussions (e.g., cooperate in case of security incidents or regulatory inspections, transitional efforts post termination, etc.) and a range of other topics which go beyond the paperwork.
