Achieving information security in the supply chain

With increasing reliance on suppliers for delivery of information based services you need a joined up approach to supplier management

For organisations that want to integrate supply chain information security management within their ISMS, or for those without the need or budget for stand alone, expensive supply chain solutions, there’s ISMS.online.

Secure relationship management

Whether you are working with suppliers, partners or other third parties you need a place for working privately internally around that relationship. ISMS.online offers an all-in-one workspace for managing the relationship and its component parts.

No more losing key contact info or waiting until someone is back in the office because the information you need is left on their email…

Capture key contacts and automatically create a history for internal communications, coordination and audit history.

Link to key contacts from your disaster recovery plan and ensure everyone knows who to contact quickly in case of emergency.

Create and manage contracts

Upload contracts and other supporting documents to ensure all your valuable supplier information is kept securely in one place.

Undertake version or change control of contracts and schedules easily. Ensure everyone is on the same page and the history of movement is captured for future learning and efficient audit.

No more being caught out by auto renewal of contracts or missed opportunities to negotiate improvements. Assign account owners, contract managers and set renewal dates to get reminded of key date.

Monitor performance

Your supply chain needs to deliver on its promises for your business to succeed.

You can monitor success of your supplier and other third party relationships with simple performance measures.

Implement practical KPIs to align supplier performance with your ISMS objectives or broader business goals.

Collaborate with your supply chain

Not all suppliers are equal, and some need more attention than others to keep your business on track.

Adopt our policy of supplier segmentation to help focus your resources on the suppliers with the most value and risk. It addresses the requirements for control objective 15 from ISO 27001:2013 and will save you money too.

You can also use the functionality within the ISMS.online platform for collaboration with your strategic suppliers. Work together in our safe place to deliver success and ensure one view of the data and focus each other on the goal at lower cost and risk than old fashioned email or physical meetings.
