How financial firms can manage third party risk

May 2015

Are third parties worth the risk for financial institutions? It’s a multibillion-dollar question when every week, yet another business interruption, data breach, or compliance failure seems to surface in the news. We believe the answer is “yes”—provided a firm takes the right approach to risk management. Ultimately, a robust third party risk management program may even make using third parties less risky than keeping those functions in-house.

Using third party service providers can be a risky business. Get fewer headaches by getting on top of the problem.
