However, without the support of executive leadership, implementing and maintaining a robust third-party risk management program (TPRM) can be an uphill battle. On this webinar we will address strategies to secure executive buy-in and ensure the success of your third-party risk management program.
Attendees will learn how to showcase the substantial ROI that investing in third-party risk management can yield, reducing annual loss expectancy from third-party-related adverse events, including how to:
- Craft a persuasive business case that emphasizes the financial benefits of a TPRM program,
- Enlist an executive sponsor from the C-suite and equip them with the knowledge and enthusiasm needed to champion your TPRM program effectively,
- Build alliances across various organizational functions and align your third-party GRC program with the broader strategic objectives of your organization,
- Integrate your TPRM processes into official company policies.
