Vendor due diligence takes up a lot of time, especially if you're performing the same level of due diligence for every vendor. A more effective and less time-consuming approach is only doing the due diligence appropriate for the particular level of risk that vendor brings, such as treating a high-risk vendor differently than a low-risk vendor or a non-critical vendor differently than a critical vendor.
