CABEM Assessment & Risk Manager

Software Overview

The CABEM Assessment & Risk Manager

This decade has seen a massive leap in dependency on third-party vendors. With that has come news-worthy vendor security holes disrupting operations and damaging reputations.  

Yet, some organizations still have no way to assess technology and security risks. Others depend on point-in-time due diligence processes that are tedious and not nearly effective enough. We need a better approach. 

92% of legal and compliance leaders say point-in-time due diligence processes could not have identified risks that had a material impact on their businesses. – Gartner Research 

CABEM’s iterative approach to third-party risk management provides everything you need to: 

• Assess, track, and compare vendors as their security postures evolve 

• Help preferred vendors remediate risk and improve their standing 

• Maintain and prove regulatory compliance 

• House and adaptively assess industry standard, and custom, requirements 

Those businesses that employ the iterative approach indicate business partners are 3.5X more satisfied with the business’s ability to quickly engage with third parties, 2X as satisfied with their ability to remediate third-party risks before they have a potential impact, and 1.5X more satisfied with the ability to surface third-party risks before they are too late to remediate.  – Gartner Research

Here’s How It Works: 

  • Create – Leverage assessment surveys or create your own 
  • Invite – Send vendors a secure link to complete the assessment online 
  • Score – Configure automated scoring and acceptance thresholds 
  • Inform – Surface opportunities for vendors to improve 
  • Decide – Compare vendors side-by-side for more informed decisions 
  • Report – Instantly output audit-ready reports 
  • Repeat – Invite vendors to return frequently, confirm past answers, and provide updates
  • Protect your brand reputation 

  • Ensure regulatory compliance

  • Maintain operational stability

 CABEM has 20+ years of experience developing custom enterprise solutions for highly-regulated industries. We created the CABEM Third-Party Risk Assessment platform in collaboration with top experts in enterprise risk and following our motto:  

Software should be able to do business the way you want to, so that’s how we build it. 

What is a Vendor Risk Assessment?

An organization should not engage with a third-party vendor until they have performed an evaluation of their potential risks, a vendor risk assessment. Once an assessment has been completed and approved, then the third-party vendor relationship can move forward. Regular assessments help to maintain business standards and provide visibility into vendor security. The assessment identifies hidden risks that otherwise may have been overlooked during vendor onboarding. The types of vendor risks include those related to compliance, reputation, finances, operations, and strategy, as well as an organization’s cybersecurity.

 

What is CABEM Assessment & Risk Manager?

A tool to help facilitate this assessment and manage the process of evaluating the vendor’s risk as seamlessly as possible. By covering topics such as CMMC, SOC, PCI, PII, HIPPA, and CJIS, for example, the process of evaluating the Vendor can not only be efficient but the results can be easily reported to the Vendor as well as Auditors and internal stakeholders.
