Third-Party Risk

Optiv's third-party risk management solutions protect organizations by identifying, assessing and mitigating risks posed by vendor relationships.

Simplifying Management of Third-Party Risk

As organizations increasingly rely on vendors and partners to conduct business, third-party risk is a greater concern today than ever before. Regulators, investors and other stakeholders expect organizations to perform robust third-party risk assessment, but with so many aspects of the business reliant on third-party relationships, the cost can quickly skyrocket and the burden on IT teams can become overwhelming. To ensure that the cost of managing third-party risk doesn't outweigh the benefits of third-party relationships, organizations need a way to streamline and simplify third-party risk management.


Optiv can help. Our third-party risk solution can help organizations to effectively plan, develop and manage a third-party risk management (TPRM) program, with services to develop programs, discover and categorize partnerships, and perform risk assessments.
