3 most common challenges and our solutions

Your challenge #1

Human rights and environmental risks

Organisations nowadays do business with thousands of third parties. These third parties are increasingly involved in the execution of critical business processes. Keeping an overview of the human right and environmental risks within the supply chain is not simple, but essential considering evolving threats and the third-party due diligence requirements stated in the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz, LkSG). Many organisations struggle to promptly identify, assess, manage and monitor human rights and environmental risks at their third parties.

Our solution #1

TPRM module

The 3rdRisk TPRM module keeps a real-time watch over your third-party landscape, ensuring you’re always in the know and meet the third-party due diligence requirements from the German Supply Chain Act. Should any human rights or environmental concern or issue arise with any of your third parties, the platform promptly alerts you, empowering you to take timely and informed actions. Beyond that, smart automation is used to engage and unburden internal stakeholders and third parties with third-party risk management activities. It streamlines the third-party due diligence process by automating tasks like dispatching and analysing self-assessments.

Your challenge #2

Engaging stakeholders with risk management activities

Effective internal control and risk management are foundational for an organisation’s profitability and success. However, engaging internal teams in these processes can be challenging due to a lack of understanding, inadequate communication, or resistance to change. A user friendly platform that promotes awareness and action is needed to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the internal control environment and timely remediate any issues.

Our solution #2

Internal Control module

Our Internal Control module fosters a culture of accountability and awareness by providing an intuitive and collaborative environment where teams can easily perform internal control and risk management activities. It encourages teams to actively participate in the risk management process by leveraging gamification elements and using modern communication channels such as Microsoft Teams and Slack.

Your challenge #3

Managing the rising compliance workload

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, risk professionals are confronting an unprecedented challenge: the escalating complexity and volume of compliance tasks. Additionally, in our fast-paced and highly competitive labor market, securing risk professionals can be both challenging and expensive. This is especially true as organisations grapple with challenges across various risk domains, striving to mitigate emerging human rights and environmental risks and meeting the LkSG rules.
