While outsourcing can increase efficiency and lower overhead costs, third party vendors present a significant risk to a business if not vetted and managed properly. LogicGate’s Third-Party Vendor Risk Management solution consists of three out-of-the-box Applications within the Risk Cloud platform, supporting vendor onboarding, assessment, and remediation via pre-built workflows aligned to SIG Lite, ISO 27001, and ISO 27002, that are completely customizable to create unique vendor risk programs.
“Vendor risk management is a critical component of an effective GRC strategy,” said LogicGate Chief Product Officer, Jon Siegler. “There’s not an enterprise out there that isn’t doing some sort of outsourcing, and at LogicGate, we’re working to make the process more efficient and compliant for those involved. Because, with the right vendor risk strategy in place, organizations can make better decisions in real-time to improve their bottom lines.”
