Join this webinar, led by experts from Cranfield School of Management and Dun & Bradstreet, to hear the results of the latest Global Supply Chain Risk Report.
The Global Supply Chain Risk Report is a new joint study by Cranfield School of Management’s Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management and Dun & Bradstreet, which investigates the level of supply chain risk faced by European companies with international supplier relationships.
Analysis has been carried out using data supplied by Dun & Bradstreet, which included around 600,000 anonymous transactions between European buyers and their suppliers who were located in more than 150 countries worldwide.
During the webinar, we will focus on the Q4 2017 report, published in February 2018. We will cover the background, the key findings and practical implications for procurement professionals.
Register now to learn:
- The level of supply risk in Q4 2017
- The differences across key industry sectors and how this should be considered in procurement decisions
- How dependency on key suppliers changed compares with the previous quarter

Compliance as a practice is often seen as burden, and automation is one answer to reducing the burden. Organisations are at different levels of maturity in adopting automation in their compliance processes. However, most companies are trying to improve consistency, reduce subjectivity and use some level of tools (software, data and managed services). Best-in class organisations have automated their compliance programs to reduce the burden and cost of compliance and then re-invest those saving into further innovations.
Due diligence and knowing exactly who you are doing business with is crucial to conducting business in today’s interconnected landscape. Using Beneficial Ownership data is key to navigating the regulated business environment. Beneficial Ownership capabilities can identify the corporate hierarchy and verify the identification of customers, vendors and third parties, surfacing any connections that may expose risk to businesses.
Being a good corporate citizen is no longer just about complying with regulations; it’s also about conducting business responsibly. There are rising expectations on businesses to have full disclosure and oversight of their operations. They need to ensure ethical sourcing practices, take responsibility for risk, and promote shareholder value with good corporate citizenship.
Driven by today’s increasingly regulated business environment, supply and compliance functions are more interconnected than ever and utilise similar data. Organisations need a holistic and detailed picture of all their relationships to effectively manage risk and protect corporate reputation.
Compliance is integral to an organisation’s culture, and there has been a distinct shift in this role from “police to partner.” Compliance issues are a key topic in the boardroom, and employees across the business are also expected to take shared accountability for doing the right thing. CCO’s are experiencing the extra burden of trying to maintain an understanding of the evolving regulatory landscape, while also facing close scrutiny from customers and partners, the media, and the wider public.
In this short 'Beyond Regulation' video in association with the International Compliance Association (ICA) and ITN Productions, Dun & Bradstreet's global compliance experts discuss:
- Why compliance is integral to global organisations
- How supply and compliance functions are interconnected
- How data can help organisations conduct business responsibly
- The importance of good data for Beneficial Ownership
