As the Third-Party Risk Management industry grows, the need for qualified assessor resources compounds.

Many TPRM practices preach industry best practices without having the boots on the ground to consistently execute these practices and adequately evaluate third parties. However, at Schneider Downs, our strength is in our people. Our assessors maintain a trifecta of technical expertise, business knowledge, and keen sense of risk to perform assessments successfully. Our trained assessors are readily available to inject themselves into any organization’s TPRM program and assist in preforming all levels of assessments and executing your TPRM program.

Schneider Downs’ External Assessor model is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We can provide External Assessor services in a multitude of ways to seamlessly fit into an organization’s TPRM program. For example:

  • Virtual assessments
  • On-site assessments
  • Physical and environmental reviews
  • Specialty assessments (e.g.: web application technical review, penetration testing, etc.)
  • Specific subject matter expertise: IT, Cybersecurity, Financial, Operational, Compliance, Business Resiliency, etc.
  • Pre-contract third party evaluations (prior to acquisition or on-boarding a third party)
