UpGuard, the third-party risk and attack surface management platform, in partnership with Shared Assessments, announced the release of its automated Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) Lite Questionnaire, the latest addition to its library of over 20 in-built security questionnaires.
Designed to help organizations standardize the assessment of third-party vendors, the SIG Lite Questionnaire covers a range of IT security and risk management topics, including data privacy, network security, and vulnerability management.
Often used by companies as a preliminary assessment, the SIG Lite Questionnaire is a 126-question version of the SIG designed to provide a broad, but high-level understanding of a third party’s internal information security controls.
“With this launch, customers can assess their vendors and risks faster and more effectively,” said Kaushik Sen, Chief Marketing Officer at UpGuard.“By combining the SIG Lite Questionnaire with our integrated security rating engine and automated risk assessment workflows, customers can have a comprehensive understanding of their vendors and a simpler risk information-gathering process.”
The SIG Lite questionnaire allows UpGuard customers to better understand, assess and mitigate the risks associated with their vendors. It enables customers to have a more comprehensive understanding of their vendors, simplify risk information collection, and comply with standards, such as NIST CSF and ISO 27001.
The SIG Lite Questionnaire is now available to all UpGuard customers immediately. For more information on the SIG Lite Questionnaire feature, read the product information page: https://www.upguard.com/compliance/sig-questionnaire
Planning is underway for the development of a SIG Core questionnaire, with a release date expected in the near future.
