Third-Party and Supply Chain Risk Types

From geopolitical risk and cybersecurity threats to forced labor and climate change, the risk factors that can threaten an organization’s supply chain are increasing in frequency and severity by the day. To mitigate long-term supply chain risks proactively, it is critical for organizations to establish a holistic view of the overall risk factors that could adversely impact their operations, revenue, and brand reputation.

Navigating the Seven Dimensions of Risk

A single supplier decision requires a complex and endless waterfall of risk-weighted decisions to optimize a supply chain.  Multiply this by thousands of suppliers in a serial production scenario, and decision complexity explodes in terms of variables. Exiger’s risk model helps simplify some of that calculus, capturing the multitude of supply chain risks into seven major categories.

 

Focusing on only one or two types of risk at the expense of others can also hurt your organization in the long run, as your risk coverage will have limited visibility and effectiveness. Risks don’t respect boundaries. A holistic view and constant monitoring are required.

 

Exiger’s seven dimensions of risk provide a framework to help our customers identify, mitigate and combat the many third-party and supply chain risks that threaten tiered supply chain ecosystems today.

Financial risk has close ties to business continuity risk and operational risk. If an organization has poor financial solvency, this could lead to supply chain disruptions due to third-party financial failure. Similarly, any history of financial crime among its senior executives could result in reputational risk by association. To mitigate these risks, it’s important to establish a holistic picture of your suppliers’ financial stability. To achieve this, you need to monitor a wide range of financial risk indicators extracted from sources such as news outlets, social media platforms and financial analysis providers — in real time.
 
Having a solution that brings together best-in-class financial solvency data providers that offer regional-specific insights, credit risk scores and credit ratio analysis will give you the critical information you need to take proactive action based on the financial status of your suppliers — all the way down to the nth tier. Gain detailed insight into the financial health of your suppliers by assessing the following:
 

  • Financial Fines
  • Bribery & Corruption
  • Central Bank Reprimands
  • Debarment & Sanctions List
  • S&P & Moody’s Indicators
  • Analysts & Broker Data
