Third-Party Risk Management and Compliance Requirements for Automotive Companies

The automotive industry’s complex web of suppliers and distributors exposes auto manufacturers to a broad range of third-party risks, ranging from ISO/TS 16949:2009 quality standards and environmental impact of suppliers to the potential for FCPA, OFAC, or Export Administration Regulations (EAR) risk in their distribution network. As the auto industry incorporates more high tech components – such as autonomous driving or driver assistance – they are facing a new and less familiar set of third-party risk challenges. From leaks of confidential engineering data by technology partners to implementing the controls outlined in Automotive Industry Action Group’s (AIAG) Cyber Security Third-Party Information Security guidance, auto manufacturers are recognizing a need to expand their third-party risk programs.
