AHECS Third Party Risk Assessment (Alyne sector offer)

A key element of a cybersecurity defence is a thorough risk assessment and treatment process. Third-party risks which occur along the supply chain can be particularly damaging to organisations, and as such, AHECS has identified an opportunity for a sector offering, which has many associated benefits (in addition to improved security, there are resource and financial savings).

The third party risk assessment sector offering aims to:

  • Provide third party risk assessments to enable institutions to assess the risks of vendor offerings and solutions, protecting the AHECS Partners, institutions and vendors.
  • Provide efficiencies for institutions and vendors through one third party risk assessment administered and maintained by AHECS.
  • Ensure the third party risk assessments have appropriate security and access controls.
  • Provide an external view of all vendors, through Security Scorecard, to validate the assessment.

Through this offer, CAUDIT Members are able to:

  • participate in annual cybersecurity benchmarking activity and access to aggregated and anonymised summary reports and graphs (for participating institutions)
  • have visibility of third party risk assessments for vendors within the system.
  • Up to 5 user accounts (1 x Primary Account, 1 x Secondary Account, 3 x Business Account).
  • First level technical support via a dedicated email address.

If you have any questions about this sector offer, please contact Nikki Peever or Andrew Nolan.
