16. Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM)

Third-Party Risk Management (TRPM) is an ongoing evaluation process for organizations that want to manage the risks of using vendors and outsourcing services and products. A TPRM strategy helps shine a light on areas of potential business risks. We are living in a connected world. No company runs its business without using services and products from other suppliers, and it’s not only the service and product; even the organization relies on suppliers’ data. Big firms have hundreds of data interfaces outside their core network, feeding in/out of data in real time. That’s why risk management without considering the hidden risks introduced by the third parties misses a vital part and leaves the organization with uncontrolled and unexpected risks.
Many robust TPRM solutions in the market offer end-to-end processes for information gathering, onboarding, real-time monitoring, risk, compliance and control assessments, and risk mitigation. An integrated and federated approach that helps your organizations to manage better third-party risks building trust and confidence in third-party relationships and facilitating mutual growth.
