Risky Business: Tips and pitfalls in governing and monitoring JVs, contractors & suppliers

(This meeting will be held in conjunction with ISACA)

Session Overview

Trust is an integral part of all business relationships. In today's world, third parties increasingly hold the key to competitive advantage, reputation and success. But they are not without risk. Forming a trusted and sustainable relationship is made difficult by the range and complexity of third party relationships, rapid technological advancements, increasing globalisation and reduced transparency through the value chain. These also impact an organisation's ability to protect against fraud.

Signing a well thought out, legally sound contract is only the beginning. We will use our industry experience to guide you through the common pitfalls and success factors for embedding a sustainable governance and monitoring framework for joint ventures, contractors and suppliers.
