Exception Management and Remediation
Streamline and Simplify Issue Tracking
Working with hundreds of third-parties can seem daunting, but it isn’t if you manage everything in one place.
ThirdPartytrust enables a cross-functional, cooperative workflow for issue management, that allows to convert identified gaps and issues into action items for easily documenting, tracking, and reporting on issues.
Create a Finding and Keep Moving
Assessment findings can be prioritized and easily communicated to the third-party without the analyst having to leave the workflow or go to a new screen.
A finding consists of the following:
- A new, in progress or completed status
- A remediation date set by the third-party
- Discussion threads
- Internal notes and comments
- Documents related to resolution
The tool automatically notifies the third-party and logs the finding for review later. All the while, the analyst continues to move along in their review of a questionnaire.
Managing Findings to Close
When the time is right to go back and review the finding, security analysts will find the third-party has set a date for remediation, notes are recorded and documents are uploaded. They can open a discussion thread and talk through a resolution without having to call or email.
