Licensing the Shared Assessments Standards

The questions and risk areas covered by the Shared Assessments Standard Information Gathering (SIG) questionnaire and the Shared Assessments Agreed Upon Procedures (AUP), offer a comprehensive assessment of a service provider’s risk control environment. Originally focused on the financial service industry, the Program Tools have been expanded to include service providers for a broad spectrum of industries, including healthcare, energy/utility, retail, telecommunications, academia and others. Learn more.

One of the most unique features of the SIG and AUP are that they are kept current by the Program’s members. A committee of risk professionals work to refine the Program’s Tools on at least an annual basis. New risk control areas are added, and existing risk areas are enhanced, based on the issues these risk professionals encounter every day. This member input is what keeps the Shared Assessments Program Tools on the leading edge of third party risk issues, since their original release in 2005.
