Vendor Risk Assessment Program | Corporate Participation

Save time and streamline your sales process.

Doing business with higher education can sometimes be a slow process, and vendor questionnaires or RFPs can be frustrating and time consuming.

To help higher education institutions and corporations work together more easily, we've established the new EDUCAUSE Vendor Risk Assessment Program in partnership with GreyCastle Security.

What Is the Vendor Risk Assessment Program?

The EDUCAUSE Vendor Risk Assessment Program is a cost-effective, standardized, and thorough way for companies that serve higher education institutions to quickly and easily provide their cybersecurity risk.

It enables higher education institutions to streamline their purchasing process and vendor onboarding by having access to a common set of standards against which a vendor’s individual risk can be identified and resolved, and it leverages your existing HECVAT questionnaire, along with other inputs.

By participating in the new program, we can help you:
