Third parties are still perceived as the most prominent high risk for companies. Other than bribery and corruption -- modern slavery/human trafficking, data privacy, information and cybersecurity, anti-money laundering, and other areas are requiring third-party integrated risk assessment and planning.

Compliance and data privacy law thought leader Kristy Grant-Hart, CEO of Spark Compliance Consulting, offers an innovative approach and inspiring perspective in this conversation.

Major takeaways discussed in the episode:

Bribery and Corruption: This remains the most significant problem since the general business population's perception that what a third party does on your behalf isn't your problem. Because some countries have laws like that, this built the sensibility that "if I didn't do it, then it doesn't matter."

Due Diligence Integration: Every company is different; however, it is crucial to apply a comprehensive and consistent approach to conducting due diligence in all categories in appointing and maintaining relationships with third parties.

Scoping: By defining the degree of risk to be reviewed and identifying the highest probable risk scenario, this will be based on the quantitative things that we know, like the CPI score, like the Trafficking in-person report. That's where you try to start so that you're looking at the right risk with the right tools.

Digital Assets: Many parts of the business are not working together to have that third-party onboarding. The problem is that they don't want to work together necessarily. Using various technology-enabled solutions for your clients will enable you to clearly and effectively see across the entire risk spectrum. See less -
