Jonathan Swanson

Jonathan is a seasoned risk management, governance & compliance executive, currently leading the design of an enterprise-wide, global Third Party Risk Management program at Aetna.

The program scope is expansive and includes the development of risk management processes, across the end to end third party engagement lifecycle, for over ten types of third parties, each with unique engagement models and touchpoints with business operations.

These processes encompass an approach to eight risk domains, and the program design will consolidate and integrate these processes and associated governance groups – including building representation from Enterprise Risk Management into the second line – into one enterprise approach, enabled by the implementation of a TPRM technology as part of the deployment activities. The planned roll-out of the program will be global, spanning all territories across the US as well as markets across EMEA, and will be underpinned by a change management program to guide the evolving risk-culture.

The program will also take a ‘Big-Data’ approach to analyzing risk for a selection of the more than one million third parties that Aetna engages with.

Prior to this role, Jonathan spent over ten years serving Fortune 500 Financial Services and Healthcare organizations as both an internal & external (Big-4) consultant and has an extensive background in the areas of Risk, Sourcing, and IT related functions including supplier governance & risk management, security architecture, GRC, information risk management, sourcing transformation, large-scale outsourcing, IT program management, software development, and IT infrastructure. Jonathan holds a number of certifications including ISC2 CISSP and has a B.S. in Computer Engineering with a minor in Computer Science from the University of Hartford.

Between design sessions and strategy meetings, Jonathan can be found traveling in his motorhome with his girlfriend on a quest to visit every state and every US National Park, Jeep Wrangler in-tow.
