Drata's Latest Research
Welcome to the Drata's Risk Trends Report. This visual research report results from an enterprise-level analysis looking into a critical element of organizational risk: third parties.
In recent years there has been a significant rise in cybersecurity related supply chain attacks, now even overtaking the damage done by malware. As part of that increase, there were 10 million people impacted by supply chain attacks that targeted 1,743 entities.
Drata developed a study designed to tap the pulse of commercial and enterprise organizations to determine what, if any, impact existing processes associated with managing third parties have on the business, how they are set to change in the next two years, and the level of risk associated with them.
Third-Party Risk: The Universal Operational Challenge
In this year’s report, we found that a lack of visibility into third parties, Layered Risk, creates blind spots that make it nearly impossible to conduct an appropriate risk assessment for the modern perimeterless architecture that most businesses align with today.
As captured throughout the report, these blind spots result from a universal operational challenge that impacts nearly every business.
