Doesn't point to the real problem
This article does a great job describing the problem. Unfortunately, however, the discussion of potential solutions fails to point to the real problem: lack of resources. While the concept of creating cross organizational monitoring teams and the idea of darknet vigilance do make sense in theory, they don't reflect the reality, where the number of third-party data exchanges are far beyond what organizations can handle. A crucial piece of tackling the third-party risk problem is a platform that not only collects information about your third-party risks, but also points out areas that require attention or present challenges to your organization.

Cavoukian
On the privacy front, we saw this happen recently in Toronto when privacy expert Ann Cavoukian resigned her position from a major Smart Cities renovation project by Sidewalk Labs (an Alphabet subsidiary / Google sister company). Upon hearing that the assurances that data would always be anonymized at the source could no longer be assured when it came to outsiders working with a third party that commissioned Sidewalk Labs for the project (Waterfront Toronto), Cavoukian reportedly quit right then and there.

Empheral? Really?
Nice article.  Thank you.

By the way, you probably misused the word Ephemeral in your title.  Maybe you meant to use the word "Eternal", because "Ephemeral" means "very short-lived", and in fact, as long as a company has third-party vendors, the potential for risk never ends.
