Masterclass: Why Supplier Assurance?  Putting Theory into Practice


This session will set the scene of why supplier assurance is so important. We will look at a few case studies of cyber breaches that have occurred as a result of a third party or supplier. This will highlight how and why things can go wrong if this risk is not regularly assessed. Following on from this, you will hear from one of Crossword's consulting directors about putting theory into practice with a presentation about the delivery of a supplier assurance programme for clients including a global financial services business. Hear what the common challenges are and learn how you can overcome these.
