To understand the challenges that companies face in protecting sensitive information shared with third parties and best practices in mitigating third party and Nth party data breaches, Opus sponsored an in-depth market research report fielded by Ponemon Institute, a leading “think tank” in data privacy and information security.

The report, now in its third year, was expanded from the prior studies.

The result is essential reading for all risk professionals focused on the cyber and data risks posed by third and Nth parties such as vendors, suppliers and partners.
