Solutions for Audit and Compliance Teams

Simplify auditing and reporting for third-party risk management regulatory compliance

Several government regulations and industry frameworks require organizations to demonstrate controls related to third-party access to systems and data. Yet, most Chief Compliance Officers (CCOs), compliance auditors and risk managers struggle to identify risks, map them to regulatory requirements, and enforce remediations. This is often a result of manual, spreadsheet-based approaches to third-party risk management.

With Prevalent, auditors can establish a program to efficiently achieve and demonstrate compliance.
