The Importance of Proactive Vendor Due Diligence to Better Manage Risk

Ryan Rodrigue

March 15, 2023
12pm - 1pm

Does your vendor management program address both the technology security and compliance concerns during the full life cycle of the vendor relationship? The risks associated with outsourcing processes to third and fourth parties continue to rise. These days a mature program is proactive rather than the classic reactive approach, analyzing compliance responsibilities and risks for all involved parties that interact with such relationships. Wolf will provide its industry experience to discuss what a mature program looks like, as well as shedding light on what can go wrong if a proactive approach is not taken. Attendees will leave this session with the knowledge of how an effective vendor management program functions across lines within an organization.
