KPMG proudly hosted our seventh annual FS Third Party Risk Management (TPRM) share forum as a modified half-day virtual session to provide attendees with many of the same benefits that they had become accustomed to over the previous six years—industry-led panel discussions and breakout sessions that allow tailoring to individual interests.

Our focus was on how TPRM programs are adjusting in the wake of COVID-19, while also becoming more resilient and sustainable due to stronger E.U. and U.K. regulations.
