Different types of suppliers will have very different risks - e.g. with providers of telecom equipment you will have the risks of equipment breakdown, eavesdropping, etc.; with providers of specialized security services you will have the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data, unauthorized change of sensitive data, industrial espionage, etc.
