The term “due diligence” is an overused expression in the compliance field. It seems that even industry specialists have difficulty defining it except highlighting that it has different meanings in different contexts. Every year organisations worldwide fall prey to unscrupulous business dealings and other outside threats posed by seemingly legitimate business partners. The current climate of pandemic made global organisations even more vulnerable. During these unprecedented times, it is more critical than ever to stay compliant and have an effective strategy for evaluating and monitoring third-party risks. Usually, onboarding a new third party is just the beginning of more essential processes towards organisation’s success. To make this journey easier to businesses across the globe, we are pleased to announce a complimentary webinar on “Conducting Effective Due Diligence for Third-Party Risk Management”.
