Welcome to the Think Tank!

This highly interactive and fun session leverages the audiences’ collective experience to drive greater value and takeaways. It works like this: For the first 10 minutes, each table discusses individual roadblocks and challenges with 3rd party risk management. Then a designated attendee from each table takes the floor microphone and asks our panel of experts a key question from the table discussion. The goal here is to cater to specific interests of attendees to provide the most pertinent and valuable information possible.

More and more, breach and enforcement activities against covered entities result from the actions or in-actions of third party partners. Poor engagement, oversight, monitoring and dis-engagement often leaves covered entities responsible for all of the risk, fees, and reputational fall out.

In this session, get your questions answered and learn best practices to mitigate 3rd party risk.
