The Risk of Third-Party Engagements

As organizations flourish in today’s fast-paced business environment, it makes good sense to turn over specialized tasks to businesses that do it best via third-party engagements. These third-party arrangements give businesses the chance to focus on achieving core strategic objectives while keeping up with non-core—but still extremely important to operations—tasks related to administration, accounting, IT services and more.

While third-party engagements offer organizations many practical benefits, they do not come without a certain degree of risk. If you are considering outsourcing one or more business tasks, it is important to develop and implement the appropriate third-party controls and monitoring strategies to ensure that third-party businesses are performing effectively, efficiently and in compliance with your respective agreements. A solid third-party risk management plan can help.
