To prevent data breaches throughout your supply chain, organizations must adopt a thorough third-party risk management framework. One important method used for verifying regulatory compliance is the completion of a security questionnaire; such as a GDPR Vendor Assessment Questionnaire, for example. However, this process can be time-consuming, expensive and tedious. Unnecessarily complex questionnaires with redundant or irrelevant vendor survey questions lengthen the third-party risk management lifecycle and as such, hinder business.
How can organizations make vendor questionnaires more effective? This guide covers essential steps, including:
- How to identify standards and regulations
- How to scope your questionnaire
