Supply Chain & Third Party Assurance

A robust third-party assurance programme allows your organisation to ensure the data and systems it entrusts to its providers are maintained in a secure and compliant manner.  Proper due diligence and risk analysis are critical components delivering the assurance programme and should become an integral part of contract management.

Third party due diligence should focus on the thorough vetting of organisations, prior to establishing or continuing a relationship.
