“This report is different than anything else available, as my peers and I applied our know-how building and maintaining TPRM programs. We talk about our challenges and use our real-world experiences, what has worked for us and what hasn’t, to provide information on what an effective program should look like,” says lead researcher and author Mike Davis.

The report includes sections on the technology and programs – whether designed and built in house, outsourced to a TPRM vendor or a combination. It also reviews staffing implications, recommendations for TPRM to the C-Suite and possible objections and obstacles.

“For any CISO looking to understand how to build a TPRM program or how to enhance one already in place, this CISOs Investigate report will help them answer many of the questions they may have,” says Marc Crudgington, CISO and SVP Information Security of Woodforest National Bank.
