Examples; 10 of the 948 standard requirements:

  1. Many organizations are unsure who should be in charge of managing third-party risk: in your organization, is it a function of procurement, legal, compliance, risk management or information security?

  2. What specific staging, readiness and deployment techniques will the Vendor use to determine the proper sequencing of deployment processes and functions required for successful implementation?

  3. Does the software require any additional system components, libraries or modules that your organization needs to obtain, test and deploy on corresponding existing operating system platforms?

  4. Does your organizations strategic business plan include measurable and achievable goals and clearly defined levels of authority and responsibility related to the third party arrangement?

  5. When you consider how much money your organization spends on its physical appearance, is not it worth spending at least that much on its compliance, operational and reputational risk?

  6. Why worry about the costs and risks associated with maintaining and managing the data protection process, when you can rely on a trusted cloud backup vendor to do the heavy lifting?

  7. Are reports prepared on a monthly basis adequately reflecting the amount of activity with the third party and providing sufficient information to properly monitor the activities?

  8. Does the vendor perform integrated technology and operational recovery exercises for the already stated operations involved in providing goods and services to your organization?

  9. Does internal audit have a consistent and effective audit and compliance program set forth and completed over the financial risk management functions of your organization?

  10. Do you have evidence of adoption of your organizational risk management strategies, policies and standards developed by your second line of defence by your third parties?
