Dinner Meeting Topic:

The Increasing Importance of Supplier Risk Management
to the Enterprise


Organizations continue to increase reliance on suppliers and third parties to provide services and capabilities that have historically been provided in-house. However, the responsibility of managing related risks remains in-house. Without enterprise level supplier risk management, organizations can be exposed to any number of operational, compliance, and strategic risks through their supplier relationships. While an organization can outsource services and capabilities, it cannot effectively outsource responsibility.This session will review:

  • Vendor risk management life cycle
  • Complicating factors to vendor risk management
  • Vendor risks and threat categories
  • COBIT5 guidance for Vendor Risk Mitigation Strategy
