Companies increasingly struggle with third-party risk in the post-COVID-19 environment. The pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges such as ongoing trade disputes, supply chain reconfigurations, and growing regulatory focus on the integrity, security and sustainability of supply chains worldwide. These challenges further expose a firm to regulatory and reputational risk from its supply chain partners.
