Why You Should Attend

LIVE Virtual Training - Severe-Weather Power Outage Response and Restoration

New regulations, technologies, standards, and security threats require organizations to implement robust vendor oversight to meet and stay ahead of the latest risks and challenges. However, the service provider control evaluation process has long been inefficient and costly. Each outsourcing organization produces and distributes its own proprietary questionnaire to each of its service providers. Service providers strain their resources to respond to diverse outsourcer information requests. Inconsistencies from one questionnaire to another cause delays for all parties. Time and resource intensive onsite visits further burden both the outsourcer and the service provider.

This trainer-led, live virtual session will be offered in a 3x3 format (3 hours of e-learning over 3 days [two 90-minute sessions/per day] for a total of 9 hours.
