What no one tells you about third-party risk management: How to embrace the unknowns


Third-party risk management (TPRM) is a hefty responsibility, with threats and challenges coming from all directions. According to a 2018 study*, 59% of companies surveyed experienced a data breach caused by a third-party. And 22% of respondents admitted they were unaware if they’d even had a third-party data breach in the past 12 months.

So what unknown risks are flying under your radar?

In this webinar, we examine why so many third-party risks remain hidden, and how to find the “unknown unknowns”—the risks you’re not even aware of. You’ll get a framework to help you identify and address the unknown risks so you can build a truly effective TPRM program.

You’ll learn:

  • How to get buy-in from stakeholders to push through your TPRM improvement efforts.
  • Which untapped data sources can reveal unknown third-party risks.
  • A step-by-step approach to uncover, document, and manage unknown risks.
