What is a supply chain assessment?

A supply chain assessment is an assessment of a supplier's relationship to an associated profile

within an organization. A supply chain assessment can be associated with one or more organizational profiles depending on what relationships the supplier has across the organization. A supply chain assessment can be associate with an overall enterprise profile , individual business units, or departments within the X-Analytics account.

Why is creating an X-Analytics Supply Chain assessment important?

The supplier assessment allows X-Analytics to understand the cyber risk and financial impact of the relationship based on not just the external view of a supplier but upon the internal relationship of that supplier to the associated profile. This is directly related to formulating a risk rating of the supplier relationship within the threshold set by the organization and understanding estimated financial exposure of the relationship across data breach, business interruption, ransomware, and misappropriation.
