Frequently Asked Questions About Third Party Risk Management

Third-party risk management is the process of identifying and mitigating risks created when working with outside organizations. It is a proactive solution to risk control, which provides the framework, policies, and procedures you need to evaluate new and existing third-party partnerships.

Here's a simple three-step TPRM process to ensure your company is mitigating third-party risk when possible:


  1. Review and revise existing risk policies. Keep third-party exposure in mind.  Be sure to consider how third parties can impact regulatory and other compliance requirements.

  2. Conduct an audit of third-party relationships. Extend this review beyond your formal purchasing contracts. Consider open-source dependencies, workgroup-level relationships, and shadow IT. Understand the risks created by these relationships.

  3. Draft internal and external TPRM policies. Supplement these policies with compliance expectations for specific business units.

  1. Evaluation: Assess a third party’s ability to manage and mitigate risk.

  2. Onboarding: Obtain formal agreements with specific compliance expectations. 

  3. Monitoring: Evaluate third-party security and risk management systems regularly.

  4. Maintenance: Update policies and respond to risks as they are identified. 

  5. Offboarding: Sever system integrations and destroy or return business records.

Vendor risk can be mitigated by having a third-party risk management program. An effective third-party risk management program reduces: 


  • Cost: Organizations develop proactive measures to prevent or mitigate financial risks. 

  • Compliance risks: A TPRM framework identifies legal risks and helps develop controls and contingencies.

  • Confusion: Risk management increases organizational visibility across all relationship stages. 


In addition, an effective TPRM program increases security, trust and reporting capabilities.

The risks associated with your vendors would be any that you have discovered during your security review process of the vendor that you are monitoring, tracking, treating or accepting as you are in business with this vendor. These typically fall into the categories of Profiled Risk, Inherent Risk, or Residual Risk. For example: “Vendor has a password policy that does not meet our internal policy requirements for passwords.”

 

Once a risk is identified, determine the appropriate treatment plan. In the example above, this might be: “Vendor will implement stronger password policy by Q1/Q2.
