Third-Party Risk Management Implementation

Delivery Excellence

Planning

We understand that not all companies excel at implementation. That’s why we manage each step in a high-touch way, understanding that driving next steps saves valuable resources and ensures timelines are met.

Project Management

RedKnot guides stakeholders through the basic blocking & tackling of the implementation, including requirements-building, identifying dependencies, constraints, accountabilities, integrations and timelines.

Implementation Assurance

We know what’s at stake — potential compliance enforcement action, audit findings and risk exposure. Our experience and composure has led highly-regulated companies through successful examinations by Federal and State agencies.

Our strength lies in managing highly visible, complex initiatives requiring cross-functional participation, utilizing a methodology-agnostic governance approach.  We have implemented comprehensive third-party risk management programs in short time frames to meet examination deadlines and mitigate risk.

We don’t mean to brag, but we deliver on difficult implementations for some of the largest regulated companies in the U.S.  Regardless of the size of the initiative or the chosen methodology, RedKnot’s goal is to deliver business value in the most expedient, efficient and predictable ways, with accountability and transparency. Whether your project is multi-year and large-scale or short-term with a small deployment, we treat each with focused detail on approach planning, requirements definition, architecture design & solution, build & test; through transition to business-as-usual.
