Benefiting From IT And Vendor Risks Management Alignment

  • March 30, 2017
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET

The ever increasing impact of vendor incidents indicates that it cannot remain to be a siloed function. Vendor risk management needs to be aligned with IT risk management to truly identify and mitigate risk exposure. Fragmented systems for each business function eliminates the leverage organizations can get from well-defined risk control program. Such alignment enables risk based vendor contract definition, improves mechanism to track vendor failures, ensures compliance, and enhances business continuity management to name a few.

Organizations need to work towards building a common framework for managing IT and vendor risks which will improve data aggregation, and standardization and risk intelligence. An integrated approach, will help organizations improve decision making and collaboration with vendors to manage the associated risk.
