The Key To A Strong Vendor Risk Management Program Is A Solid Foundation

ServiceNow

Vendor risk is just one of the many facets required of a strong risk management program and should be paid equal attention. But due to its disconnected nature from the core of the organization, it can be difficult to demonstrate the criticality of a strong vendor risk management program to leadership, much less to know where to start when implementing or strengthening a program. Frequently, teams will spend a lot of time defining a program and trying to make it perfect. However, perfect is the enemy of good in this case and the plan rarely survives contact with reality.

Further, the cost of failing to properly evaluate and manage vendor and third-party risk has been estimated to be some $13,000,000 on average.

Organizations understand the risk that is involved when doing business with third-party vendors, but they still lack the resources or drive to implement and maintain mitigation strategies — which could turn out to be a costly oversight.
