About this study (methodology)

This global study explores the deep waters of third-party risk through the lens of AB&C and ESG, as organizations are faced with competing priorities. Opinion research was conducted in early 2022 among 600 chief compliance officers (CCOs), heads of legal, or equivalent executive roles (referred to collectively as “compliance leaders” in the report), across the world. Respondents were based in the UK, USA, France, Germany, Asia (China, Singapore and Japan) and Brazil. A wide range of sectors were also covered within the research including tech and telecoms, lifestyle and consumer, manufacturing and industrials, energy, automotive/transportation and life sciences.


Navigating deep waters is based on in-depth research commissioned by Hogan Lovells. The concept and research were designed by Man Bites Dog.
