Tools for Mitigating Third-Party RisksEY's Arpinder Singh on Addressing Supply Chain Risks
To help mitigate supply chain risks, organizations should leverage web scraping tools, social media analytics tools and robotics to verify third-party providers, says Arpinder Singh of Ernst & Young.
“It is important to have both automation and manual practices in place to ensure a thorough background check of third parties, Singh says. “If you identify some high-risk third parties, you need to do a site visit; you need to see their facilities as the current databases are not very comprehensive.”
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Singh discusses:
- Third-party risk management processes that should be automated;
- Essential components of a background check program;
- Technologies companies are deploying to cope with effects of the pandemic.
