Third-Party Assurance & Vendor Risk Management

Most organizations today rely on numerous third-party vendors, suppliers and partners. These relationships can add tremendous value to your organization but also add significant risk if not rigorously managed.

Your Challenges

Mitigate Third-Party Risk

Vendor security is more critical than ever, yet many companies still struggle to identify, assess and risk rank the partners that support their business. Handling risk management processes via emails and spreadsheets adds to the complexity of security assessments while reducing their effectiveness. An end-to-end vendor risk management program that leverages automation tools can give you the necessary insights to stay ahead.

In a reactive world, having hundreds of vendors’ security information scattered across spreadsheets makes identifying risks, such as who has access to sensitive data or is up for reassessment, extremely difficult. In a proactive world, you're able to locate, assess and track vendors through their entire lifecycle.
