Global third-party risk management survey 2021

Our latest research shows that the pandemic has led many organizations to make digital advancements in their approach to third-party risk management (TPRM).

Extended enterprise risk management (EERM) Third-party risk management global survey 2020

A desire to be a responsible business that effectively manages social and environmental issues and responsibilities throughout its supply chain, is – for the first time in five years – one of the key reasons companies invest in third-party risk management (TPRM). Deloitte’s fifth annual extended enterprise risk management (EERM) global survey report highlights six key themes, alongside the impact of COVID-19 on managing third-party risk and our predictions for 2020-21.

Extended enterprise perspective

Cost and revenue recovery can be a strategic linchpin during the COVID-19 crisis. A robust cost and revenue recovery strategy not only helps achieve significant cost and savings benefits, but also enhances an organization’s ability to realize—and fund—extended enterprise goals.

Balancing Responsibility and Cost

As the broader business environment moves toward higher levels of responsibility, many enterprises are changing how they manage third party risk. The range of risks that organizations face has expanded over time, and as a result may require new ways of thinking and funding. Additionally, enterprises are under ever-increasing pressure from customers, investors and other stakeholders demanding responsible practices throughout the organization, including its third parties, further driving the need for change.

A practical guide to resilience

“Resilience” was well on its way to becoming a business buzzword before the COVID-19 pandemic began. As with most buzzwords, it was overused to the point where nobody was really quite sure what it meant; they just knew it was a big deal.

The Future of Trust: Measuring Enterprise Performance

There’s a tendency among businesses to regard Trust as an abstract and amorphous concept. It’s important to have it – but how do you know when you do, and how do you quantify it? At the organizational level, Trust often gets attention when it takes a nosedive – a reactive, crisis-management strategy that’s often too little, too late.

Deloitte Releases Global Risk Management Survey

The financial services sector has faced unprecedented challenges in risk management due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic not only created internal disruption with lockdowns and work-from-home mandates, but its massive impact on the global economy also dramatically escalated credit risk. This caused financial institutions to provide creative solutions to keep customers solvent, such as restructured loans and deferred payments. Thankfully, the vaccine rollout promises a more robust economy and greater stability moving forward, but the future remains unpredictable for the financial services industry, which places even more importance on both financial and non-financial risk management.

Amid Growing Activism, Companies Should be in the debate, not on the Sidelines

COVID-19 has led to an intensification of people’s attitudes toward many social and environmental matters. The ways in which the pandemic has exposed issues like income disparity, racial division, and the consequences of human impact on the environment, are motivating more people to take change into their own hands.
