Podcast Transcript

Hi – my name is Abbe with Venminder.   

Abbe Clark Headshot

In this 90-second podcast, you’re going to learn about the hazards of an incomplete or inefficient due diligence process

At Venminder, we have a team of certified industry experts who specialize in ensuring all areas of third-party risk management are accounted for. This includes  vendor due diligence 

Due diligence helps with vendor selection, ongoing monitoring, structuring strong contracts and preventing unwarranted risk to your organization and customers.  

Let’s review 5 of the most hazardous effects of incomplete vendor due diligence:  

  1. First, you’ll have an inconsistent application of due diligence standards. Creating consistency helps keep us on track when it comes to performing regular, ongoing due diligence. 

  2. Second, incomplete due diligence can cause you to overlook fundamental vendor issues. Proper due diligence helps you decide if you wish to do business with the vendor. Without it, you may fail to uncover issues or address any problem areas prior to entering into or renewing a contract 

  3. Third, failure to proactively anticipate arising problems will happenPerforming adequate due diligence gives increases the odds of anticipating any vendor problems early on

  4. Fourth, you’re risking regulatory violations. Major regulators, including the FFIEC, require due diligence to be conducted on all third parties to determine their risk level. Not doing so can lead to violations and hefty fines. 

  5. Finally, the fifth hazard is an inability to protect your organization and customers. You run the risk of putting your organization, your customers and all underlaying data at risk from possible breaches or data intrusions. Iyou're unaware of where you're exposed to risk, there's nothing you can do mitigate it. 

There are many hazards of incomplete due diligence, but inconsistency, overlooking fundamental issues, failure to anticipate problems, regulatory violations and an inability to protect your organization and customers are the big ones.  

Thanks for tuning in; catch you next time!
