When: Wednesday, July 21st @ 2pm EST
Presented By: Michael Rasmussen, Corporate Integrity, and Chris Noel, TruArx.
In today's economic climate, many organizations outsource parts of their business to take advantage of cost savings and solution-expertise. However, as vendor relationships increase, it becomes more difficult to manage them. The risks assumed by outsourcing can be significant without a vendor management program. According to the 2009 Verizon Business Data Breach Investigations Report, 32% of breaches originate with a business partner compromise.
In this 1-hour live webcast, Michael Rasmussen, President at Corporate Integrity, will share his insights on the importance of vendor management, as well as his recommendations of best practices for defining and executing an effective strategy. Chris Noell, EVP of Product management of TruArx, will then provide a brief overview of how GRC tools such as TruComply can automate key vendor management activities and enable these best practices.
In this session, you will learn about:
- The importance of vendor management and how it applies to your business
- Best practices for defining and executing an effective vendor management strategy
- How you can quickly and cost-effectively establish a mature vendor management program

Simply, anyone who is researching, implementing, or managing a vendor management program should attend this webcast.
