3rd party vs. XaaS
 I have a hard time calling AWS S3 misconfiguration a third party risk.  They weren't at any fault, the customer misconfigured the service they purchased, when ample documentation is available.  I agree whole heartedly that people need to understand what their risks are in their business relationships, but that starts with being honest with oneself, too.  Every cloud provider I know has a post somewhere of a shared repsonsibility model.  Security configuration of IaaS services, like S3, are definitely the customers'.  Poor training, lack of testing, monitoring, etc. is what leads to most failures.  Even the fabled Target hack that spawned a large amount of the focus on thrid party seems to me to improperly understood.  Fine, your HVAC vendor was hacked, and some malicious actor was able to use their VPN connection.  Why can your HVAC vendor reach your POS systems?  There must have been plenty of steps along the attack chain that could have been detected and the actions stopped, but no, now we all have to fill out a 73 page 3rd party risk questionairre before we can buy or sell anything, to make folks feel better. </RANT>
