Alpharetta, Ga., July 18, 2018Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions, has published a free white paper, “Managing Risk with a Truly Secure Vendor Management Program,” which is now available for download on its website.

Recent cybersecurity incidents affecting financial institutions have largely involved third-party service providers, prompting increased attention and scrutiny from regulators. Safe Systems’ white paper addresses key best practices to help community banks and credit unions effectively meet compliance requirements and protect themselves from third-party security threats. Additionally, this paper provides real-life examples from four Safe Systems customers sharing their challenges with vendor management and how automating this process has helped them successfully achieve their IT, security and compliance goals.

“Vendor management is a challenging and time-consuming process for community financial institutions, and the risks associated with third-party relationships can be quite costly if not managed properly,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. “Our white paper provides financial institutions with actionable insights to help them efficiently evaluate critical vendors, reduce risk and build a secure vendor management program.”
