Cyber Health Check: Outsourced Services
If you outsource services such as payroll processing, loan servicing, data center/co-location/IT Managed Services, Software as a Service (SaaS), or medical claims processing, you rely on the service provider to keep your data secure, maintain confidentiality, integrity of processing, availability of services or systems, and/or privacy. However, AAFCPAs reminds clients that outsourcing may expose your organization to risk and underscores the need for effective vendor due diligence.
AAFCPAs’ IT Security Specialists designed a short 2-minute quiz to assist clients in assessing the security of the services that you outsource. Clients are encouraged to utilize this resource in discussions with your IT services group.
