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.
