HECVAT now available on Privva's Award Winning Platform

June 1, 2019

Privva is excited to announce we are now offering The Higher Education Cloud Vendor Assessment Tool (HECVAT) on our platform.  This content is helping Higher Education institutions simplify the process of assessing their vendors.


The HECVAT was created by the Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) Shared Assessments Working Group, in collaboration with Internet2 and REN-ISAC.


The Higher Education Cloud Vendor Assessment Tool (HECVAT) attempts to generalize higher education information security and data protection questions and issues regarding cloud services for consistency and ease of use.  You can freely use either version of the tool -- the original robust version or the lightweight version. Use of HECVAT:

  • Helps higher education institutions ensure that cloud services are appropriately assessed for security and privacy needs, including some that are unique to higher education

  • Allows a consistent, easily-adopted methodology for campuses wishing to reduce costs through cloud services without increasing risks

  • Reduces the burden that cloud service providers face in responding to requests for security assessments from higher education institutions

Higher Education Institutions can now utilize Privva’s award winning platform to enhance their vendor assessment process and centralize the reporting, documents, and communication on Privva.
