The Role of Governance, Risk and Compliance in Vendor Management
The 2014 Vendor Risk Management Benchmark Study by Shared Assessments found that vendors fail to meet vendor risk-management guidelines and do not invest in the resources to meet best practices despite the current regulatory environment. Yet the regulatory spotlight is increasing as evidenced by recent amendments to HIPAA in the US placing specific requirements on sub-contractors. Vendor management is one of the top priorities for privacy professionals in 2015 and vital to a successful ongoing governance, risk and compliance program for any large organization.
This second Webinar in the TRUSTe 2015 Privacy Insight Series will review how to identify key considerations, requirements and risks when dealing with downstream vendors and a check list for effective program management. Register now to set your company off on the right foot for 2015 and accelerate and streamline the vendor risk management process in your organization.
