Why is Third-Party Risk Management Important?

Disruptive events, have impacted almost every business and their third parties – no matter the size, location, or industry. In addition, data breaches or cyber security incidents are common.

  • Internal outages and lapses in operational capabilities
  • External outages affecting areas across the supply chain
  • Vendor outages that open your organization to supply chain vulnerabilities
  • Operational shifts that affect data gathering, storage, and security

TRPM- The Macro Picture
Across the board, third-party risk management is growing in importance, with many companies around the world in the process of developing departments to improve it. It is increasingly being viewed as an important investment companies must make to protect themselves from financial, regulatory, and reputational risk. This prioritization of TPRM is aligned with a push for centralization of processes and the standardization of procurement approaches, reporting, and risk management across companies.

Five steps to Third-Party Risk Management

No matter how you decide to address TPRM, there are five essential steps that will go a long way in minimizing risk.

  1. Identify – The first step is determining which companies you do business with that could bring about any type of risk. An understanding of this third-party ecosystem is critical.
  2. Classify – Taking a risk-based approach, you’ll need to identify how much risk each third-party places on your organization based upon data, system access, and service provided.
  3. Assess – Next, the security posture of the third parties you do business with must be evaluated. Depending on the nature of your organization, you’ll have varying levels of assurance based upon third-party risk.
  4. Manage Risk – Here, you’ll outline steps to put policies in place and decide how remediation should be addressed. Basically, you’re asking whether to accept or avoid risks.
  5. Monitor – The last step involves the continuous monitoring of third parties to ensure they meet contractual obligations and sustain their security posture.
