Risks are endless, and they continue to expand as a consequence of globalization. Supply chain audits of your suppliers, factories and global operations are an essential component to safeguarding your brand and reputation. Compliance with social responsibility, business continuity, security, and product quality assurance (GMP/GDP) are challenges that all organizations face. Excessive resources dedicated to non-targeted audit programs is also a common challenge that organizations must address.
Understanding who your suppliers are, how they operate and what risks they pose to your global operations allows you to better protect your supply chain and minimize unnecessary costs. By mapping out your global operations and analyzing their geographic and unique business partner threats you can accurately identify your high risk suppliers, factories and corporate locations. Once the high risk entities have been recognized, you are able to create a targeted audit program that will encompass levels of supplier self-assessments, audits and corrective actions to ensure your supply chain is protected and your resources are being utilized in the most efficient way.
It takes more than a standard audit report to fully understand where your risks lie and how to mitigate them. Join us to learn how BSI's suite of intelligence infused software solutions and services can help you implement and maintain a holistic risk-based audit program to improve global compliance, and reduce risk and audit costs.
