Why Attend?

Vendor & third party risk management is gaining, year after year, more significance in the risk process for every financial institution. Many areas need to be considered: new regulations to implement, different jurisdictions in which to be compliant, high-end technologies developing in cloud storage and data collection.

The industry needs more platforms where to gather, discuss and try to standardize approaches, both on the regulatory and on the outsourcing sides. Industry wide, assessing concentration risk, operational resilience, reporting issues and data protection will help businesses to improve their performances.

SURVEY

 Taking the Pulse of Third-Party Risk 2019

Annual Third-Party Risk Management Benchmarking Survey

This annual survey is designed to help benchmark some of the key questions that can indicate the status and health of your third-party risk/supplier risk/vendor risk program. For example:

  • Does your program have the appropriate funding?
  • What is the typical organizational structure?
  • How are third party risk professionals remunerated?
  • How engaged is your board?
  • How mature are programs and what are the greatest challenges?

It’s completely anonymous and will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. All those who participate will be placed into a prize draw to win a free pass to one of our upcoming 2019 conferences. 

The report builds on last year’s research and will be an invaluable resource to benchmark your programs against your peers, drive investment conversations within your organization, and instill best practice approaches within your program. The final report will be available free of charge to participants and the wider third-party risk community to support education and benchmarking.

BITSIGHT

IHS Markit


KY3P® is the first centralized data hub that simplifies and standardizes third-party risk management processes. Third-party relationships are under growing scrutiny by global regulators, including the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), FINRA, the UK Financial Conduct Authority, and the Monetary Authority of Singapore. As firms increase reliance on third parties to deliver business-critical processes and services, oversight complexity also increases. The lack of standardization around collecting due diligence data can lead to duplicate efforts, creating inefficient processes that might result in delays in response times, revenue recognition, increased costs and overall inconsistency of information. KY3P®, developed in partnership with global banks, asset managers, and Big 4 consulting firms, is designed to help you simplify third-party risk management processes. By standardizing due diligence questionnaires and storing third-party information centrally, the service minimizes efforts around information requests and responses.
