Sam Abadir, Vice President of Industry Solutions
  • Risk Landscape 
    • The constantly changing risk scene due to products, services, technology and data and how third-party risk management is forming to these complex variables.  
  • Framework and Process 
    • A defined yet flexible approach to managing third parties helps organizations better identify and manage their third-party risks. 
  • Difficulties in Management 
    • Knowing who, what and how to manage third party risk is difficult.  Many organizations believe the same process, data and techniques are required across their vendor landscape and attempt to put a cookie cutter process in place to manage this. That might work for some risk that vendors pose but often it becomes ineffective.
