Vendor Management Program – How Model Risk Fits In

With financial institutions increasingly relying on third-party providers to offer all their products and services comes increased risk. Starting with the core system, should you outsource it or keep it in-house? And following with the rest of all the banking products you offer to your business clients or members that depend on technology, how in depth should your due diligence be? In this educational session, the presenter provides best practices based on the FFIEC IT Examination Handbook to help you develop a simple yet comprehensive Vendor Management Program. In addition, along with Vendor Management, which includes all the third-party providers of systems and software, comes yet another risk—Model Risk. The presenter will explain step by step the OCC SR Letter 11-7 following their guidance on Model Risk Management. You will walk away with a clearer understanding of where Vendor Management and Model Risk Management fit it within your ERM program.

This webinar will help your institution identify key vendor relationships and conduct the appropriate due diligence. In addition, you will learn how Model Risk fits in the Vendor Management and how model risk affects your institution from a simple Excel spreadsheet to the more complex reports produced by your core system.
