Information Security and Privacy
Risk assess your third-party's key information security risks to identify areas of possible weaknesses.
Venminder’s Information Security and Privacy Assessment (ISPA) provides you with a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand risk assessment for vendors who impact your information security and data privacy posture.
Get a Full Risk Assessment at a Glance
Venminder’s ISPA simplifies third party risk management by presenting the key cybersecurity and information security risks of your most important vendors in eight critical areas: overall risk profile, security testing, third party review, physical security, resiliency, information security governance, information security and business continuity.
Be Confident in Risk Results
At a glance, you’ll know if a vendor is providing regulatory-acceptable service relating to cybersecurity, physical security, business continuity and resiliency. ISA provides a risk ranking for each vendor based on the appropriateness of responses. While a low risk ranking may still require follow up, you can be confident that the vendor’s risk environment meets industry standards. A severe risk ranking lets you know that this vendor presents multiple probable threats or risks and that you should prioritize follow up.
Understand the Guidance or Standard Addressed
ISPA links each assessment item to the relevant industry guidance and standards. Using a standard PDF viewer, place your mouse over the assessment item and you’ll see the regulation, page and section the item addresses.
What It Includes
Venminder handles the end-to-end process of building relationships with your vendors, gathering documentation and filling gaps through ongoing communication with each vendor. Our goal is to ensure that you have confidence in the security and privacy abilities of the vendors you choose to do business with by providing an efficient and time saving approach to comprehensive third-party risk management. By showing inherent and residual risk in the same dashboard view, the Venminder ISPA allows your organization to quickly understand the maturity of that vendor’s security environment at a high level, while also providing the technical details that your security and risk management experts want to see.
