Contractor On/Off-Boarding Compliance

A significant issue arose when a contractor stole a client's laptop. This incident was not uncovered through routine audits but was instead exposed following the client's immediate alert to their Managed Service Provider (MSP). An investigation into the MSP's Vendor Management System (VMS)—responsible for tracking contractors and their onboarding documentation—revealed a critical oversight: the documents uploaded by the supplier, which were expected to include a duly signed Intellectual Property Agreement (IPA) and Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), were not signed. This lapse occurred because the MSP relied on the supplier's mere assertion of compliance, marked by a 'tickbox,' without conducting a thorough document verification process. This oversight exposed the client to significant data breach risks and highlighted a severe flaw in the MSP's vendor management and compliance practices.
