Webinar: Third-Party Risk: Critical Requirements for Benchmarking Your Business & Supply Chain

COVID-19 has re-defined “normal” for businesses. Considering such a rapidly-changing environment, daily government guidelines, and the new work-from-home adjustments we’re all facing, it’s critical to ensure your organisation’s focus on examining Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery and Resiliency Plans. This webinar will help you:

• Understand how to adjust continuity plans to account for degraded product/service levels due to regional quarantines
• Know your third-party ecosystem and identify weak links posing risks to your operations
• Identify where to strategically cut costs to minimise damage to the supply chain
• Address questionnaire fatigue among your vendors
• Proactively prepare for the regulatory fallout after the dust settles

This webinar will help you identify where the gaps are in your third-party assessments and how ready you are as the situation evolves.
