Shared Assessment of Security

Most institutions have some form of formal security review and approval process that is followed prior to signing contracts with service providers. While reviewing and documenting security prior to signing a contract is important, it is also time consuming for both the service provider and customer. One way to make such process more efficient and standardized for all is to use the forms available at Service providers only need to fill out the form once, and clients can expect to see a well organized review of security that is tied to meaningful standards. I encourage the use of this valuable resource, and wonder if others have found it useful as well.
