The Supplier Risk / Vendor Risk Management Problem
The reality of today’s global and interconnected marketplace is that your procure to pay department is facing constant threats that may have a serious impact on your organisation’s performance. The negative impact of a single event on your organisation’s financial position or reputation is potentially huge, even devastating. Risk simply cannot be ignored, even while you work to reduce costs.
Organisations with strong supplier risk / vendor risk management programmes systematically identify, assess, and mitigate threats to their assets and data that might be caused by the organisation’s supply chain. This is critical because although suppliers are essential to business, they can also do damage if their security controls have not been adequately vetted.
