Risk Management

Businesses have been given a revised charter – call it digital transformation, an innovation culture, or simply enterprise change – to create long-term value, competitive advantage, and derive new cost savings for shareholders.

To meet these objectives, organizations are increasingly reliant on third-party vendors, suppliers, and service providers to scale efforts beyond current personnel headcount.

Amidst several stringent privacy regulations, businesses are under pressure to look closely at how they assess, monitor, and mitigate risk with third-parties. To maintain compliance with all applicable regulations, companies are seeking more automation and centralized databases for third-party risk management throughout the entire vendor lifecycle. In this Cyber Security Digital Summit session, the key operational features to implement in your own organization are shared to ensure you’re audit ready for any regulation.
