Third–party risk management (TPRM) continues to be a focus area for both regulated and non-regulated entities alike in the operational resiliencelandscape.The reason being that thirdparties often introduce added risk to organizations outside the scope of their direct control.
Since the start of the global pandemic, we’ve seen how disruption can alter our third-party ecosystems. Risks that once seemed unlikely– such as global political instability, war, an increase in cyber and ransomware attacks, supply chain disruptions, and increased pressure from regulators – have all made it essential that organizations have better visibility into their vendor ecosystems. Given third parties support strategic and important business services, it is critical to ensure that your organization has its arms around the risks that come with them to ensure the resiliency of your own operations.
The Old Model of Third-Party Risk Management
Organizations who are managing their third-party risk in a manual state can face significant hurdles in their vendor onboarding and ongoing due diligence processes. Scanning the news, social media, and regulatory information can be time consuming for one vendor, let alone the hundreds of critical vendors that some organizations have. These teams often solely rely on vendor questionnaires where the thirdparty may provide incomplete or even inaccurate information. Because the process can be time consuming, diligence screening is generally conducted one time at the point of onboarding. It is also important to remember thatthird-party risks can change over time, and without automation, you may be missing something critical.

Future-proof Your Ecosystem
If your organization is subject to prescriptive financial services requirements, you’re generally expected to monitor vendors based upon the risk that they present to your organization. If your organization does business within the financial services ecosystem, you’re expected to adhere to financial services third-party outsourcing requirements contractually – even if your organization is not directly regulated by the supervisory authority. In any of these situations, the penalties can be harsh, and the reputational damage of letting a nefarious thirdparty through your door can be lasting.
