Please join us on Friday, August 21st, 2020 at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET for “Hacking Third Party Risk : An hour of critical thinking on how to consider and measure all risks into your overall risk posture”.


Third party risk is the most unknown and most requiring of investigation. What are the steps to take in uncovering where that risk is, and how is it incorporated into an overall governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) program.

Joining me in this discussion will be:

Before the event, be thinking about the following:

  • How tenuous is a vendor management program?
  • What’s the danger of separating third party risk from company risk?
  • How do you keep ongoing tabs on third parties and their risk profiles?
  • What’s an example of a risk that might not be a big deal for a third party vendor, but is a big deal to your company?
  • When do reputational risks from a third party affect you, but not the third party?
  • What are techniques to get third party vendors more onboard with aligning their risk with yours?
  • What is inherent, residual risk, and overall risk for an organization?
