Appian and KPMG offer third-party risk insight in webinar

Join Appian & KPMG for vital comment, insight, and advice on ways to manage risk in third-party relationships across all business sectors

In the aftermath of recent high-profile supplier failures, risk in the supply chain is now high on the list of C-suite priorities, meaning it's more important than ever to stay on top of this crucial area.

For this reason, we are hosting a webinar -- Future proofing your Approach to Third-Party Risk Management, on Wednesday, March 30 at 5pm GMT. 

This BizClik Media Group webinar will explore how the right mix of technology, skills, experience, and knowledge can improve supplier collaboration, increase growth and - crucially - help manage third-party risk.

Third-party risk management is key

Third-party risk management typically covers six areas of risk: cybersecurity, compliance, reputational risk, financial, operational and  strategic risk.

Problems around reducing risk that businesses face often arise from a lack of visibility or insight into supplier compliance. Varied and disparate systems can also make gathering due diligence information a challenge.

On hand to give insight, expert commentary and advice will be two leading industry figures.
