VENDOR RISK MANAGEMENT is the process used to identify, measure, monitor and mitigate the risks associated with outsourcing services the third parties. However, a haphazard approach and lack of standard framework and methodology can result in disastrous consequences for the institution and its customers.

  • Still struggling with assessing Inherent Risk (risk before controls) and Residual Risk (risk after controls)?

  • Asking too many questions or too few or the wrong ones?

  • Do the questions vary based upon who is asking them on any given day?

  • And what about criticality? How are you defining THAT?
