Vendor Management – Agencies Raising Expectations

The banking agencies recently issued proposed guidance on managing the risks of third-party relationships that will replace existing guidance. Vendor management has been an important issue for a long time, but it is apparent that the expectations will be increasing, no matter in what form the proposed guidance is finalized. The rise of fintech companies and their participation in the banking industry has changed the landscape of risk in important ways, and financial institutions need to adapt.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the proposed guidance and what these new expectations are, and how to best improve your vendor management program to implement the changes and expectations. We’ll also go over the elements of a successful vendor management program in any institution, from vendor selection to monitoring.
