This webinar will delve into how third parties are generally managed by nonprofits today, often without any centralized control or strategy, with no common standards or processes, and with no one “owning” third-party management. At the same time, there is a greater reliance on vendors and other third parties more than ever before, including for critically important services. For instance, with an ever-increasing utilization of cloud-based services, and an ever-increasing regulation of privacy and data security at the state, federal and international levels, prudent management of these risks is a necessity.
In the program, you will learn about:
Common third-party risks that need to be managed, including information security, legal and regulatory compliance, strategic, operational, and a big one for nonprofits - reputation.
How you can take a process-driven approach to assessing these risks and perform an appropriate level of due diligence before and after you sign the contract.
Tips and best practices you can begin using immediately to mitigate and manage risk through contracts, oversight, insurance, testing, and contingency strategies, among others.
Ourwill discuss numerous real-life examples to bring these issues to light in practical terms that are easily relatable, focus on the failures and breaches that have caused problems for nonprofits, and explore best-practice approaches for implementing successful third-party management.
