The Third-Party Risk Analyst Intern position is a great opportunity to learn about how risks associated with establishing relationships with 3rd parties are assessed at a global enterprise. As companies grow and need to outsource tasks and functions to outside companies, a Third-Party Risk Analyst becomes both critical and crucial in understanding the risks of these relationships and protecting the company from possible data loss or unauthorized intrusion. This role adds value by identifying and assessing the controls used by 3rd parties to ensure that our data is adequately protected, and the business is aware of any risks we may incur by partnering with a third party.
