Shared Assessments

More and more, corporations of all sizes are using outsourced services to support critical business functions. But while companies can outsource sensitive data processes and services, they can never outsource responsibility for the associated risk. To manage risk and respond to evolving regulatory requirements, companies must carefully evaluate the security of the controls their service provider partners have in place.

Shared Assessments is a member-driven, industry-standard body that injects speed, efficiency and cost savings into the service provider control assessment process. Shared Assessments Program members work together to eliminate redundancies and create efficiencies, giving all parties a standardized, consistent, faster, more rigorous, more efficient and less costly means of conducting security, privacy and business continuity assessments.
