Session Overview

Changing threat landscapes in domains from cyber to regulatory, in concert with an increased reliance on third parties to deliver core services in the public sector, have driven a growing trend of re-evaluating Third Party Management (TPM) strategies. The primary challenge that emerges is optimizing the level of exposure an organization is willing to accept with the level of effort necessary to manage priority risks. This delicate balancing act is further complicated by an organizational desire to maintain Third Party Relationships and unlock the value that the right business partners can deliver.

Successful TPM programs strike the right balance between effort, breadth and depth of managed risks, and management oversight. These programs are able to effectively mitigate priority risks, accelerate Third Party performance, and reduce Third Party and associated administration costs.

This session will be split into two parts, and will explore the characteristics of successful TPM programs and how leading organizations have self-funded these programs through innovative initiatives. The first part will focus on a public sector organization’s challenges in successfully engaging with its Third Parties. The latter part will focus on how one can “audit” TPM and support optimizing an organization’s Third Party Relationships.
