How Kanika is building a better working world

Cyber, resiliency, privacy and technology play an increasingly important role in a digitized economy. In today’s transformative age, disruption and innovation in these areas create unprecedented risk to EY clients, particularly through our use of third-parties.

Building a robust and inclusive third-party risk management framework is becoming an increasingly important priority across organisations, based on a comprehensive understanding of each organization’s reliance on third-parties, and the services they provide.
