Effective Due Diligence for Third-Party Risk Management: Webinar Series

Effective Due Diligence for Third-Party Risk Management. The term “due diligence” is an overused expression in the compliance field. 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 pandemics made global organisations even more vulnerable. It is more critical than ever to stay compliant and have an effective strategy for evaluating and monitoring third-party risks during these unprecedented times. Usually, onboarding a new third party is just the beginning of more essential processes towards the organisation’s success.

To make this journey easier for businesses across the globe, we are pleased to announce a complimentary webinar on “Conducting Effective Due Diligence for Third-Party Risk Management”. This webinar is hosted by the CRI Group in collaboration with the Pakistan Institute of Corporate Governance (PICG).
