A comprehensive risk assessment strategy is a critical step for companies managing their important vendors. However, the screening process can leave a risk team with more questions than answers. Risk scoring empowers a company with quantifiable risk measurement by providing a valuable tool for making the most informed decisions regarding their third parties. Evantix's new e-book describes how risk scoring works and how it can streamline and strengthen vendor risk management efforts. Features of the guide include:

"Without a robust vendor risk assessment strategy, companies are left unsure, if not blind, to the risks that their third parties present," says Jason James, vice president of risk advisory services at Evantix. "Risk scoring has dramatically changed the vendor risk management game for the better. A few concise metrics provide an innovative boost for risk professionals who would be otherwise overwhelmed in data and are under pressure to make the right decisions. Our new e-book shows how risk scoring can be a game-changer."
