CRI® Group invites you to schedule a quick appointment with us to discuss in more detail how conducting due diligence and compliance can help you and your organisation. 


The role or size of the third party is not as important as the nature of the relationship they have with your business. Think of your third-party level of access to your sensitive data or your property! A cleaning company with access to your filing cabinet represents a different but still significant risk. And remember, you are accountable for the inappropriate actions of any of your third parties. Do you have answers to the following:

  • Have a lack of visibility or understanding danger of the risks posed by your relationships with many types of third parties?
  • Want greater visibility into third-party performance and risks?
  • Need to improve operational costs, process, efficiencies, and organisational agility associated with your third-party relationships?
  • Need to gain greater control over the related risks?
  • Want to be confident that third parties are compliant with your business’ policies, as well as their own—based on government regulations and industry requirements?

If your organisation seeks answers to any of the above questions, you must consider a third-party risk management solution. CRI® Group invites you to schedule a quick appointment with us to discuss in more detail how 3PRM™ can help you and your organisation.
