The success of an organization is often built on a large network of third parties supporting your business such as distributors, suppliers, joint ventures, R&D collaboration partners, tollers, agents or any other service provider. Of these third parties provide an organization with specialized skills, innovative products and/or services, access to new markets or new distribution channels but they also come with a unique risk profile. The challenge for an organization is to optimize its operations by the smart use of third parties while minimizing the multiple legal and reputational risks that can be associated with them, which can be very costly to remediate.
