Today’s global economy opens up a world of opportunities, but reliance on a vast web of vendor relationships to conduct day to day operations creates and a whole new world of risk exposure.

Crowe’s Third-Party Risk Benchmark Report provides valuable insight into how the Life Sciences industry is responding to these challenges, common critical gaps in oversight of supply chain risk, and the key considerations for achieving regulatory compliance and developing a more robust and mature TPRM program.

ProcessUnity and Crowe invite you to join us, and your peers, for an evening’s discussion where you will have the opportunity to share experiences and discover best-practices in identifying and mitigating potential critical disruptions and risks within the supply chain.

Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

  • Addressing the challenges of growing regulatory pressure in the healthcare and life science industries
  • Strategies for identifying and mitigating risks throughout the third-party supply chain
  • Best practices for creating scalable models for third-party risk management and reduction
  • The importance of maintaining a framework, program, and resources to ensure risks are identified and managed effectively

Join industry peers and TPRM experts from Crowe and ProcessUnity to learn how leading life science and healthcare organizations are addressing growing regulatory pressure and creating scaleable models for third-party risk management and reduction.
