Increased reliance on third parties, growing ethical concerns, and new regulations create complex requirements for ethics and compliance professionals. Some of those obligations include understanding the potential risk present in your third parties. Accordingly, ethics and compliance professionals must conduct third-party screening, due diligence, risk management and mitigation, and ongoing monitoring throughout the relationship with third parties.

Third-Party Risk Management for Ethics and Compliance helps address these challenges with integration and automation, ultimately reducing the ethical and compliance risks associated with those third parties. Rich integrations with screening and compliance monitoring providers adds even more visibility into the risk in third-party relationships.

The solution enables automation of the end-to-end third-party due diligence process through key capabilities including: 

  • Screening: Run compliance checks for your third parties against sanctions lists, adverse media and other sources, such as PEP lists, Anti-Slavery, Bribery and Corruption, and more.
  • Inherent Risk-Based Tiering: Automatically calculate inherent risk scores to prioritize further diligence and assessment to the third parties that present the most risk to your organization.
  • Risk Assessment: Leverage dozens of out-of-the-box ethics & compliance third-party assessment templates and automated risk assessment workflows with intelligent risk flagging.
  • Risk Management: Reduce risk with automated treatment workflows, leveraging out-of-the-box mitigation recommendations and control frameworks as well as allow for cross-departmental collaboration and management.
  • Compliance Reporting: Understand the state of your third-party risk management program with interactive dashboards, executive-ready PDF reports, and recordkeeping to demonstrate compliance.
  • Ongoing Monitoring: Monitor your third parties over time, running routine adverse media and other compliance checks that trigger pre-determined actions as additional risks.
