Enterprises increasingly operate in a digitally interconnected world where third parties like suppliers, customers, channel partners, and others are often directly connected to their internal IT systems, and where their underlying IT infrastructure may be owned and managed by an outside organization. These business relationships can knowingly or unknowingly introduce different types of risks that need to be identified and managed as if these third parties were part of the enterprise itself. Recorded Future's latest risk intelligence offering enables threat intelligence teams to better understand, monitor, and measure their real-time exposure to these third-party risks. Armed with this information, organizations can better assess and prioritize risk mitigation actions.
The stats, risks, and tactics you need to shape your mobile strategy are in this definitive guide!
We’ve compiled all the stats you need from first- and third-party surveys. We’ve identified the key risks. And, we’ve outlined the tactics you can put in place. With this definitive guide, you will have everything you need to shape a mobile strategy that succeeds.

To ensure that “quasi-insiders” or third parties do not contribute to your enterprise’s attack vector, it’s imperative to develop a third-party governance process to mitigate risk. Read on to find out how.
OAuth is an emerging Web standard for authorizing limited access to applications and data. It is designed so that users can grant restricted access to resources they own—such as pictures residing on a site like Flickr or SmugMug—to a third-party client like a photo printing site. In the past, it was common to ask the user to share their username and password with the client, a deceptively simple request masking unacceptable security risk. In contrast to this, OAuth promotes a least privilege model, allowing a user to grant limited access to their applications and data by issuing a token with limited capability.
Data security risk caused by third parties is a pervasive problem.
Yet, many organizations granting remote privileged access to third-party users leave gaps that represent significant security risks.
If you’re like most organizations today, you frequently grant vendors, contractors and other non-staff members access to internal networks and systems. These privileged users remotely administer your operating systems, databases or applications using their own endpoint devices.

This guide is designed to break down the complex challenge of mitigating third-party corruption risk into manageable components. Based on hundreds of member conversations and extensive research, we believe that successful companies conduct third party due diligence in five key phases.
Growth in new markets introduces new costs to
control, regulations to manage, and supply chain
complexities to solve.
Longer, more complicated cold chains mean that
collaboration with third party logistics providers
(3PLs) can help make the difference between
profitable simplicity and unmanageable complexity.
Companies are increasingly relying on their 3PLs
for services such as monitoring and intervention,
contingency planning, and cost control.
Reduce risk by improving packaging, visibility, and
establishing QA best practices.
Improved visibility, new tools, new monitoring
capabilities and appropriate packaging can also help
drive down costs for shippers.
Establishing a culture of integrity, ethics and respect is the number one priority for companies in 2017, according to a new report. In common with the 2015 report, getting an organisation's culture right is the main objective for compliance professionals in the year ahead, with 85 per cent of respondents saying it is one of their three main goals.
However despite this, only 32 per cent of firms indicated that they are planning to undertake a culture or ethics assessment in the next twelve months. In addition, workplace behaviour was rated as the lowest area of risk receiving attention by stakeholders (29 per cent).

Screening your third party vendors and business partners for risk can be a challenging process. With so many different factors to consider, where do you even begin?
We've developed our Anti-Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment Checklist so you can streamline your compliance risk assessment processes and ensure each potential risk is addressed. Keep up with changing European laws and regulations with this checklist.
Thirty percent of organisations expect to do more work through outside third parties in 2017. However, third parties are responsible for 75 percent of foreign bribery schemes, making these engagements rife with risks that can’t be ignored. A strong third-party risk management programme will help your organisation make smart choices when it comes to engaging with outside business partners.
The Definitive Guide to Third-Party Risk Management gives you insight, advice and examples to help your organisation recognise and address third-party risk.
As our unpredictable world becomes more complex, interdependent and dangerous, it’s becoming harder to manage third-party risk. Traditional financial and operational risks seem like the good old days. Now procurement has to manage, mitigate and avoid risks as disparate as conflict minerals, cybercrime, natural disasters, resource depletion and many others.
In this whitepaper, industry expert Michael Volkov, CEO of The Volkov Law Group, LLC, shares key questions no business can afford to overlook when evaluating and selecting vendor risk management solutions.
The Definitive Guide to Third-Party Risk Management is a comprehensive resource full of insight, advice and examples to help organisations identify and address their third-party risk.
A strong third-party risk management programme will help your organisation make smart choices when it comes to engaging with third party business partners. It will also protect your organisation from the risks that third parties can present.
This guide is divided into three main sections: PLAN, IMPLEMENT and MEASURE. In these sections you’ll find the information and tools you need to develop a risk-based strategy, define third-party risk and a standard due diligence process, implement continuous monitoring of third parties and identify areas in which you need to improve your programme’s effectiveness.
With the introduction of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and UK Bribery Act, organisations must take corruption in business seriously. Given the complexity of the activities addressed in an anti-bribery and corruption programme, however, the task can seem overwhelming.
Our Anti-Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment Checklist outlines how to implement an effective anti-bribery compliance programme using a protect, detect and correct methodology to manage core programme components such as:
• Risk Assessment
• Corrective Action
• Training / Communication
• Controls / Oversight
• Business Partners
Our checklist will enable you to design and implement an effective, global and consistent anti-bribery compliance programme.

The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA), Sapin II and many other Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC) laws and regulations around the world make it clear that bribery and corruption is prohibited, illegal and the source of fines, penalties, reputational damage, and in some cases criminal liability. This is particularly true when the bribes are offered to foreign government officials, especially by third parties.
Use this document to identify when bribery and corruption activities are most likely to be occurring within your business. Next to each bribery and corruption ‘red flag’ we have provided some suggested responses and best practices an organisation can use to address these issues and minimize the risks for your business.
