Effective Third-Party Risk Assessment – A Balancing Process


Brad Keller

DATE: Tuesday, 26 July 2016
TIME: 12PM EDT / 11AM CDT / 9AM PDT / 16:00 UTC
DURATION: 1 hr 00 min


The key component of every third-party risk management program is the third-party assessment process. However, correctly balancing the growing need for broader and more in-depth assessment due diligence with the need to conduct assessments in a timely and cost-effective manner presents a difficult challenge. Third-parties continue to be the primary source of breach incidents, while regulatory and industry requirements for third-party due diligence continue to expand along with the need for more effective executive and broad reporting.

How do you satisfy the growing demand for more comprehensive assessment of third-party risk controls without substantially increasing the cost and time for conducting assessments?

Join us as we discuss how to analyze your third-party assessment process to find the best methods to balance these competing demands, and key ways to enhance your assessment process to be able to do more without increasing the time and cost of assessment due diligence.
