15:15 A Third-party vendor information security policy: where’s the liability?
Following the recent cyber-attacks, Barry Callebaut has made extra efforts to secure its IT environment. Pierre Verbraeken will explain the company’s "Third Party Vendor Information Security Policy", which aims to request that external partners ensure at least the same preventive security measures as those Barry Callebaut has implemented for its own users. He will introduce the topic for the interactive roundtable, where you can discover other companies' best practices in areas such as user lifecycle management, anti-virus protection, security and OS patching requirements, USB usage, etc.
