Third Party Risk Management: Driving Effective Assessments Independently and Collaboratively

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 • 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. ET

The increased use and complexity of third party relationships in the ever-expanding banking enterprise as well as the increased regulatory scrutiny around third party oversight has driven banks to move from more passive and "trust" based third party risk practices to more active and "verify" based practices. One of the most common "verify" activities comes when banks not only survey their third parties, but when they perform remote (a.k.a desktop) or on-site evaluations as part of the third party risk assessment. In many cases, individual banks are performing these assessments on their own behalf, but there is a growing interest in performing these assessments collaboratively.

This 90-minute briefing will explore common assessment approaches as well as special considerations for collaborative assessments. Get your questions answered!

This Briefing will focus on:

Different third and fourth party assessment approaches, including scopes, frequency and methodology.
  • Special considerations for collaborative assessments
  • How to get started on incorporating verify practices within the third and fourth party assessment process
