EDUCAUSE Live! Industry and Campus Webinar | Demystifying Third-Party Vendor Risk in Higher Ed

Governing and managing third-party vendor relationships is becoming increasingly complex and significant, given all the new regulations, technologies, and standards. Many higher education institutions face the dilemma of not knowing exactly where to start when they begin assessing vendors, as well as how to do it in a scalable, cost-effective way. This webinar will focus on how to identify what companies make up your vendor pool and how to evaluate and classify the risk those vendors present. In addition to classifying vendors into functional risk areas, we will discuss best practices in creating your third-party vendor risk program.
