As the global marketplace grows increasingly complex and competitive, outsourcing/ third-party relationships have become critical to cost reduction and increasing capability. They can help enhance customer experience, accelerate speed-to-market and protect reputation. However, whilst there are advantages to working with third parties, it can add complexity to your organisation’s risk profile.

The risks requiring careful assessment and management as part of a third-party relationship include legal and regulatory compliance, environmental, social and governmental, operational resilience, financial, and broader reputational risks. So, how do you make informed business decisions about third parties and the risks they pose to your organisation?
