Taking Control of Third Party Risks: Strategies to Overcome Challenges
Date: Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Driven by increased focus from regulatory bodies, volatile consumer demands and managing cost, organizations around the world have growing interest in outsourcing various processes, services, and materials. As the web of third parties increases, and grows across geographies, organizations often find it difficult to not only manage large volume of third parties, but also the associated risk exposure. Recent third party-related incidents like data breaches, counterfeits, non-compliance to FCPA, Anti-bribery, bankruptcy, and many others have caused large financial losses, reputational damage and significant fines to the organizations associated with them.

Often, third parties give indications of trouble, but organizations are unable to identify and gain control over third party risks due to unstructured risk monitoring processes, fragmented information and lack of resources to keep track of third parties.

As the impact of unknown third party risks can be massive, organizations need to adopt definitive strategies and technology to quickly identify third party risk trends and address them with appropriate tactics for risk mitigation.

In this webinar, experts will provide insights on how third-parties and the associated risks can be mitigated with an effective TPRM program and how third party risk information can be tied to enterprise risk and the overall business objectives.

The webinar will help you:

  • Recognize the extent of third-party network and risk exposure
  • Develop a TPRM program in line with the complexity and nature of third-party relationships
  • Understand the relevance of validating third parties with external data sources
  • Tie third-party risk management into enterprise risk
  • Leverage technology to enable effective and comprehensive TPRM program

What Procurement Organizations Need Most – Flexibility & Agility
Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2016
Time: 11:00 am Eastern
Sponsored by Tradeshift

Register Now

In today’s highly uncertain, competitive and digital environment, we understand that only businesses that are responsive, adaptable and agile will thrive – but what is the procurement organizations role in enabling this? Is it to stay laser focused on delivering savings and controlling spend or is it much more? Hear directly from former CPO of Cushman & Wakefield, Joanna Martinez on this very topic. Agility comes in many shapes and sizes, from market intel and access to data to customer service and supplier relationships.

Joanna shares her views on why it’s time for procurement to go from the department of cost-cutting to the enabler of agility.

The Learning Objectives for this Event are:

  • What agility means in the context of procurement and why it matters
  • Why information and collaboration are key to enabling agility
  • How disruptive technologies help procurement create value for the business
  • Why traditional procurement approaches need to be revisited
