Building, implementing and managing a compliant vendor management program is no easy task given the proliferation of regulations, rules and Guidance, many of which overlap. And with increased regulatory scrutiny due to high profile breaches, financial institutions must have a solid understanding of the driving regulatory issues that surround vendor management, the key ideas required to build and implement a successful and compliant program, and the expectations of examiners and auditors. If you are tired of being told to “Read Guidance” then this training program is a must!
