What is Third-Party Risk Management?

Third-party risk management (TPRM) is a form of risk management that focuses on identifying and reducing risks relating to the use of third parties (sometimes referred to as vendors, suppliers, partners, contractors, or service providers).

Why is Third Party Risk Management Important to Ethics and Compliance Professionals?

Increased reliance on third parties and growing ethical concerns and new regulations create complex requirements for ethics and compliance professionals. Some of those obligations include understanding the potential risk present in your third parties. Accordingly, ethics and compliance professionals must conduct third-party screening, due diligence, risk management and mitigation, and ongoing monitoring throughout the relationship with third parties.

“Ethics and compliance teams evaluate numerous types of third parties including suppliers, agents, venture partners, investors, customers, and many others. As a result of this outsourcing, third parties introduce more compliance risk than ever before. The Third-Party Risk Management for Ethics and Compliance solution will help automate screening, due diligence, risk management, and ongoing monitoring, providing greater visibility into third parties and the risks they pose from an ethics and compliance standpoint,” said Asha Palmer, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at Convercent by OneTrust.
