WEBINAR DETAILS

Dealing with vendors is a necessary component of offering and providing financial services to individuals and businesses. From critical infrastructure and core processing, to sales and marketing, third-party risk management continues to be a focal point for state and federal regulators. Such heightened expectations demand a deliberate, yet flexible, process for engaging, onboarding, and monitoring third-party activities, especially for vendors that support critical activities.

This webinar will review the relevant regulatory guidance and expectations for engaging third parties to provide products or services to, or on behalf of, a financial institution. You’ll learn best practices for each stage of the relationship, from beginning to end, and actionable steps that can be taken during the process.
