In this podcast episode, we address the necessity of cybersecurity risk management, which is no longer just about protecting your operations.

Managing third-party vendor cyber risk is fast becoming the defining cybersecurity challenge of our time. The increase in the number of suppliers we engage with as the digitalisation of the energy sector progresses means that enterprise networks are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the vulnerabilities of those partners.

Put simply, the extended ecosystem is the threat.

Your host Claire Volkwyn speaks with Jim Penrose, former NSA senior leader and COO of New York City-based cybersecurity firm BlueVoyant. They discuss supply chain risk and its greater implications, the interdependence between organisations and how risk and cybersecurity risk management are interconnected.
