Learning To Overcome Sub-Tier Supplier Risk

The complex web of relationships that govern national and international business are getting denser and more complicated than ever before, and that added complexity brings risk — particularly when sub-tier relationships can be major liabilities. At least 75% of businesses have experienced harm because of a 3rd-party partner. The majority of supply chain disruptions occurs from vendors beyond the first tier — from the sub-tier vendors and suppliers you may not even know about. This creates huge challenges for procurement experts and others. In this paper, Interos details the reasons that have increased 3rd-party and sub-tier risk and provides strategic guidance on how to mitigate it. 

Read this white paper to learn:

  • How hidden sub-tier vendor connections pose unseen risk
  • Why knowing your tier-1 vendors isn’t enough
  • How to quickly and securely manage risk from 3rd-parties
