Employers expect stronger cybersecurity from plan service providers. They want it in writing, and the law requires it. Service providers holding large amounts of personal data face increased competition and intense scrutiny to have and prove reasonable safeguards. Cybersecurity can be a competitive advantage. This webcast explores employer strategies and best practices for designing and conducting vendor cybersecurity assessments, as well as helping service providers be prepared to respond. It also covers legal mandates for contracts with service providers concerning cybersecurity, along with employer and service provider strategies for negotiating those contracts.

Key Takeaways:
1. Be prepared to conduct a reasonable inquiry about a service provider’s cybersecurity safeguards
2. Acquire strategies for responding to a vendor assessment
3. Enhance ability to navigate and negotiate cybersecurity provisions of services agreements
