  • How to identify the important data points and use them in coordination to tell a holistic story

Ryan Rodrigue will be speaking on the topic Technology and Regulatory Compliance:  Vendor Risk Management Best Practices. 

Does your vendor management program address both the technology and regulatory compliance concerns during the full life cycle of the vendor relationship? The risks associated with outsourcing processes to third and fourth parties continue to rise. These days a mature program is proactive rather than the classic reactive approach; analyzing regulatory compliance responsibilities that interact with such relationships. Wolf will provide its industry experience to discuss what a mature program looks like, as well as shedding light on what can go wrong if a proactive approach is not taken. Attendees will leave this session with the knowledge of how an effective vendor management program functions across lines within a bank.
