As part of normal business operations, Third Party Administrators (TPAs) undergo cybersecurity and IT compliance audits. TPAs are key third-party vendors to each of their clients. Implementing a robust compliance program can be used as a competitive advantage. Increasingly, TPAs are asked to implement and maintain a compliance program that demonstrates their commitment to a strong system of internal controls. Control frameworks (such as SOC 1, SOC 2, ISO 27001, etc.) are widely accepted and help TPAs differentiate themselves from their competitors by demonstrating their commitment to maintaining a strong IT compliance program.
