Shared Assessment and Privva Extend Partnership into 2020 for Vendor Risk Management
SIG Integration Reduces Time-to-Value For Enterprises and Their Vendors
Privva, a leading third-party risk management platform, announced it has extended its relationship with Shared Assessments to offer the Shared Assessments Standard Information Gathering (SIG) questionnaire to include the 2020 version. Privva makes vendor risk management easy, utilizing a standardized questionnaire that covers industry-accepted best practices across controls related to cybersecurity and risk management including but not limited to cloud security, privacy, business continuity, and disaster recovery.
“Privva’s goal is to reduce challenges faced by all stakeholders in the third party risk management process. Scalable distribution to vendors, real-time tracking of vendor progress, and automated scoring with the standardized content will reduce the headache of the security assessment process,” said Ishan Girdhar, CEO of Privva. “We want to make our clients and vendors job easier so they can go home a little earlier. The partnership makes this a reality”.
Shared Assessments is a member-driven organization uniquely positioned to develop standardize resources that help organizations manage the full lifecycle of a third-party relationship, from planning for third party engagement, to due diligence and vendor selection, contract negotiations, ongoing and continuous monitoring and termination. The SIG questionnaire provides an inventory of industry standard questions for the remote assessment process that allows an organization to scope initial assessment information regarding a service provider’s controls.
“We commend Privva for taking the step to incorporate the latest version of the Shared Assessments standardized tools into their platform.” Said Catherine Allen, CEO of Shared Assessments. “ This shows a commitment to their customers’ third party risk management assurance. Standardization and diligence in third party risk is what will move this field forward.”
Privva currently offers the 2019 SIG with the 2020 SIG officially being released on November 19, 2019.
