KYP and RiskRecon, a Mastercard Company today announced they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining KYP’s industry leading third- party continuous monitoring risk intelligence platform with RiskRecon’s world class real-time visibility of third-party partners’ cyber performance. The KYP-RiskRecon  partnership will give businesses confidence and peace of mind by providing deep insights, rich intelligence and real-time information to make informed decisions on risk, resulting in more profitable relationships.

The challenge nowadays is trust – do we know the partners and companies we work with? Businesses need a better way to manage their real-time financial, cyber and reputational risk in an increasingly global, open and interconnected world. A more complete picture of partners is required so businesses can take proactive action on risks to protect their businesses. 

This announcement follows KYP’s seed round closure, the hire of its CTO  Andrei Iacob,  the appointment of chairman David Parker and board member Luis Davila and the appointment of David Birch and Howard Hall to KYP’s advisory board.

“The KYP-RiskRecon strategic partnership is a powerful combination for KYP and our clients. Mastercard RiskRecon’s understanding of third-party partners’ cyber performance and the resulting intelligence, offers a unique understanding of a business’s third-party partner relationships. We believe this partnership with RiskRecon will offer our clients an industry leading risk intelligence platform,” said Alan Nagle, CEO of KYP. “This partnership will allow us to deliver far more business data for our customers. KYP sees RiskRecon as essential in providing our customers a deeper understanding of their partners, for the power for action on risk”.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with KYP as we look forward to delivering holistic cyber risk insights to their customers. Together, we are excited to announce with this new partnership we are able to help countless organizations secure their third party risk across their vendor ecosystem.” said Rigo Van den Broeck, EVP Cyber Security Product Innovation, Mastercard.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
