Companies rely on third parties to handle many business functions like IT infrastructure, SOC services, Payroll processing, applications development, data analytics, cloud solutions, and many more, to be able to concentrate on their core business.
Reaping the benefits of using third-parties does not come without risk. Depending on the level of third- party integration and level of data sharing/access granted to such third-parties, weaknesses at third party side could pose a risk at the company side as has been seen with Target and SolarWinds breaches. It is hence imperative to have an effective third-party risk management (TPRM) program to properly and continuously assess and manage third party risks.
Our TPRM consulting services offer a comprehensive approach to managing third-party risks, which covers the overall high-level program components as well as the on-going vendor risk management processes.
Our team of experienced consultants has a deep understanding of the latest industry trends and regulations, and they work closely with our clients to develop customized TPRM program that meets their specific needs and requirements.
The objective of TPRM (Third Party Risk Management) consulting services is to help organizations develop and implement effective TPRM program that ensures visibility over third-party risks and effective treatment plans, while maintaining a win-win relationship.
Monitor and manage the risk posture of suppliers in a manner that is relevant to the level of risk introduced by the supplier and supplier criticality. Monitoring and management processes include contractual compliance; performance reviews; addressing critical vulnerabilities; incident management; identifying and reassessing risks; addressing changes to supplier services; and performance metrics.
Use the processes developed as part of the TPRM framework, we would assess a number of existing vendors to measure their risk levels by analyzing responses to shared questionnaire and log detected issues, and select the best risk response that supports business objectives.
