About Third Party Risk Exams and Audits: Exams and audits have vendor management components. Understanding ways to adequately prepare for an upcoming exam or audit is critical. You must understand what the examiners and auditors expect, how to prepare documentation you’ll share with them, who should be involved and how best to follow up on their exam findings so that the same mistake doesn’t happen again.
