Vendor Security Practices: Turn the Rocks Over Early and Often (RSA Conference 2016)

Vendor Security Practices: Turn the Rocks Over Early and Often

Reverse the process with security considered early and business teams can avoid investing precious time on unsuitable vendor candidates and get rankings for suitable ones. This session will show you how using real examples.
