Managing the New World of Supplier On-Boarding through Effective Controls of Systems and Data

1 Day Events, SOFHT Breakfast Club
17 Apr

 The process of on-boarding new suppliers and the on-going requirement to maintain a robust due diligence defence has become a complex endeavour. In a world where food fraud and modern slavery have become part of the supplier risk management and enforceable in law.

The presentation looks at how IT solutions have helped to open out transparency of the supply chain, and at the same time create a level of data deluge which requires interpretation to define risk and to put in place adequate mitigation controls. Building awareness of this risk and solutions on how to manage it will be discussed.

Speakers will be delivering presentations on the following topics:

Phil Shaw

The complexity of on-boarding new suppliers and examination of the need for more information to ensure the authenticity and transparency of supply chains. The presentation will look at the impact of data deluge which can create a risk in creating appropriate mitigation controls to support the requirements for due diligence.

Chris Griffin

How IT solutions are being used to manage data and discussion on how data can be used in a positive way to enhance brand protection and deliver a platform of information to the end consumer.
