Third Party Program Assessment

While the practice of Third-Party Risk Management focuses on identifying and reducing risks related to the use of third parties, we recognize that every Third-Party Risk Management Program is different as risk is relevant to the organization and every organization has its own risk appetite.

The Focus

Third Parties are a necessary and common component of most businesses today, as more and more organizations come to rely on outsourcing as a means of keeping operations running. Relying on Third Parties can expose and leave your business vulnerable, if a strong and effective Third-Party Risk Management Program is not in place and properly monitored.

Through a defined, streamlined approach designed to be flexible yet manageable, we never substitute quality for quantity – we deliver both through a multitude of services to help you build, manage and/or execute a consistent and sustainable Third-Party Risk Management Program. Whether we supplement your team or run your program end-to-end, our goal is to ensure your program is maintainable, measurable, and compliant, while we help you drive it forward to a mature state model.
