Managing Third Party IT: Managing Vendor Security and Designing Effective Contracts
Track: Keep it Safe
Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Government organizations increasingly focus on third parties to fulfill IT needs. IT service providers, however, also pose risk to organizations, operationally, financially, and legally. This session will discuss how to effectively tier third parties in order to provide effective oversight and management, then present hands-on, practical strategies for contracting with third parties most effectively. These strategies will include approaches for protecting privacy and security, as well as financial interests. This session will include 60 minutes of open-question lecture, with 30 minutes of practical contract term review and time for questions.
