Several retailers entrusted with customer’s data have suffered theft of this data from purportedly secure servers. Overly zealous regulators have entered the fray and issued their own guidance on Third Party Risk Management, thereby creating over-lapping requirements dependent upon the types of services out-sourced by financial institutions. However, in fairness, most new requirements are an attempt to align third party governance to industry best practices.
Most companies depend on an extended network of suppliers and vendors. This network, un-monitored, is a serious potential source for data, security, reputation, and compliance risk. Most companies manage such risk by department and thereby leave themselves exposed to the weakest link when managing risk.
In a two hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an over-view of the increasingly serious issue of Third Party Risk Management & Assessment and discuss how companies and their counsel can strengthen their Third Party Risk Management and Assessment programs and ensure compliance with regulations in 2015 and beyond.
Key issues that will be covered include:
• Third Party Relationships : An Overview
• Third Party Risk Management: Significance and Implications
• Practical guidance for Third Party Risk Assessment
• Effective Approaches to Meeting Third Party Risk requirements
• TPR Software Implications - Increasing reliance on Third Party Software
