Governance Arrangements and Third-Party Risk Management Under the EBA
The EBA Guidelines recommend that institutions and payment institutions implement a holistic risk management framework. This includes the management of third-party risks to help make intelligent decisions regarding cyber risks. OneTrust Vendorpedia can help institutions and payment institutions manage the outsourcing process, including assessing the risks of outsourced service providers, ensuring that proper contractual provisions are in place, as well as safeguarding the privacy and security of information.
The EBA Guidelines specify that institutions and payment institutions cannot delegate responsibility to outsourced service providers. Accountability remains with the institution itself. OneTrust Vendorpedia helps institutions and payment institutions maintain records of all outsourcing arrangements to demonstrate accountability. With OneTrust Vendorpedia, institutions and payment institutions can identify risks and compliance gaps, automate assessment and mitigation workflows, and maintain a detailed audit trail for compliance.
Outsourced service provider or third-party risk assessments are a critical aspect of the EBA Guidelines. With OneTrust Vendorpedia, your institution or payment institution can leverage templated assessments, as well as configurable workflows to send, receive, review, and document the entire process when engaging in outsourcing arrangements.
A third-party risk management program should evolve as outsourcing arrangements change. The EBA Guidelines emphasize the ongoing oversight of outsourcing arrangements and associated risks. OneTrust Vendorpedia adds context to risks, giving institutions and payment institutions the ability to understand how data is processed, which outsourced service providers and sub-contractors have access to it, what controls are in place, and where it resides.
The EBA Guidelines expressly refer to institutions’ and payment institutions’ obligations under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a landmark data protection law. OneTrust is a pioneer in privacy management and has helped thousands of organizations demonstrate GDPR compliance. Vendorpedia helps streamline third-party risk compliance with the GDPR as it relates to outsourced service providers and their sub-contractors.
