Third-Party Risk Tracking

Track third-party risk in a central database where the third-party risk profile, assessment results, and open issues are managed.


Centrally document third parties and their risk attributes. Document the results of assessments and track issues in a risk registry. 


Tracking of third-party risk, their inherent risks and business context is a pre-requisite to managing third-party risk. Tracking of issues is necessary to understand third-party residual risk and to resolve issues. 


Track vendors, their risk attributes, business context, and issues in a central system. The system should support analysis and reporting.
