About the Community
The Third Party ThinkTank Community was launched on September 10, 2019 by Venminder to provide professionals who are working in third party risk a dedicated space to network, collaborate and stay educated.
The Importance of Third Party Risk Management
Professionals working in third party risk ensure the right steps are taken to protect their organizations from vendor risks and avoid costly regulatory enforcement actions. While risk comes in many forms - a good third party risk management program can help address financial, reputation, credit, operational risk and much more during the business lifecycle.
