Evaluating Financial Health of Private Suppliers to Maintain Resilient Operations
July 19, 2017 | 1:00 p.m. (EST)
Private companies will account for 70-80% of the critical suppliers in your third-party ecosystem, yet most organizations don't  actually evaluate the financial risks of private suppliers wit the same rigor or consistency as they do with public ones.  
Attend this session to understand the options available for private company financial analysis and how understanding the financial health of these companies can help your company maintain resilient operations and business continuity.
