Managing 3rd Party Risks
Organizations frequently rely upon 3rd party service providers to deliver a wide variety of services and other activities.  While such arrangements may result in activities being outsourced in their entirety, they do not relieve the ‘hiring’ organizations of the responsibility for managing the activities and identifying/controlling the risks associated with the relationships.
Learning Objective 1:     Gain an understanding of the potential risks that may arise from the use of 3rd party service providers.
Learning Objective 2:     Identify the basic elements of an effective 3rd party risk management program.
