    Mike, thanks for discussing this important topic.

    KYP – Know Your Partners is all about understanding the risks associated with the relationships of employees.

    In financial services, there is KYC – Know Your Customers – banks are held responsible for the actions of their customers as they relate to services provided.

    With the new Whistleblower provisions, companies cannot afford to not have a proactive plan for understanding their partners.

    KYP is key for foreign supply chains, but it does not end with the supply chain. Companies need the ability to understand all company relationships and touch points – Press, Webmail, Government Agencies, Competitors, etc…
