What is TPRM? 

Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) describes the steps that your company makes to minimize the risk that occurs when you bring on a vendor that handles and processes any of your organization's data. Every company uses third-party vendors for critical functions of the business—for example, billing, payroll, or a CRM platform. Although these third-party vendors are vital to your operations, they also represent significant unknowns when determining your organization’s risk profile.

Understanding how these vendors safeguard and protect your data, as well as their own operations, are critical components in understanding TPRM. Accounting for the risk exposure for your third-party vendors is a hard requirement for your annual compliance audits. While TPRM might be a regulatory requirement for your industry, your TPRM program can do more than check a compliance box. Ultimately, the findings from a Third-Party Vendor Assessment are critical to your business, so you need a partner that understands your business and has significant experience completing thorough assessments and recommending appropriate action.

Assessment types

We have experience performing a variety of assessment types depending on your needs. Whether you need onsite assessments for your most crucial vendors, desk-based assessments, or offshore assessments, we’ve got you covered.  

Compliance superheroes

Not all assessment frameworks are created equal. One major challenge is that your auditors may have their own expectations and requirements about assessment frameworks. MPG has significant experience here, too. We can tailor our questionnaires to meet your audit requirements while ensuring we identify all risks that may not have been recognized by existing assessment frameworks.

Fourth-Party Risk Management

Managing Fourth-Party Risk is an important part of your risk management program strategy because of the possibility that your existing vendors themselves have vendors that may need evaluation. For those most critical of integrations and relationships, MPG will provide additional assessments of your vendor’s vendors that may impact your business risk. These assessments are common when your existing vendors outsource part of or all of your integration to another vendor.
