ThirdPartyTrust, is modernizing the way vendor risk assessments are done for everyone. Our network-enabled solution allows companies to leverage the work of your industry peers who have already reviewed common vendors. ThirdPartyTrust has announced that it has joined the Shared Assessments Program, the member-driven trusted source in third party risk assurance and management. In addition to its membership in the program, ThirdPartyTrust's platform now supports the Shared Assessments Standard Information Gathering (SIG) questionnaire.

The ThirdPartyTrust company actually started from the vendor pain point in the vendor risk management process. Strategically aligning with Shared Assessments programs and content, helps us achieve our common goals of effectively solving the problem for both sides of the equation," said Anders Norremo, CEO of ThirdPartyTrust. 

“Our decision to join the program allows us to leverage hard work of the Shared Assessments Program risk management professionals and also gives our customers and their vendors an opportunity to advance vendor risk assessments to a single pane of glass. They can use our platform to reduce risk across industry supply chains and collaborate with their industry peers on assessing vendors in a common network using the SIG questionnaire." 

Serving information security teams in the United States and Europe, the ThirdPartyTrust vendor risk management platform solves for the industry problem. Where traditional solutions allow for reviewing vendors in a silo, using our platform and the Shared Assessments resources, teams can collaborate with industry peers on assessing vendors in one single pane of glass. 

"We commend ThirdPartyTrust for licensing the Shared Assessments content to advance best practices in third party risk management and look forward to having them as a part of the program. The Shared Assessments Program Tools are developed and refined by our membership and reflect the best thinking in third party risk,” said Catherine A. Allen, chairman and CEO, The Santa Fe Group, the strategic advisory group that manages the program.

ThirdPartyTrust's membership in the Shared Assessments Program, as well as its support of other leading standards, frameworks, service partners and data security providers, highlights ThirdPartyTrust's approach to a holistic assessment process built on modern technology.
