About KY3P

Know Your Third Party (KY3P®) is an award-winning solution from S&P Global Market Intelligence that enables end-to-end third party risk management. It fully supports the Shared Assessments Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) Questionnaire, which clients can issue to vendors through the KY3P platform. We provide advanced technology to determine the appropriate level of due diligence for a vendor, based on the nature of the specific service or product provided.

To ensure relevancy and reduce vendor burden, KY3P provides rules-based mapping of vendor profiles to specific SIG questions. KY3P also allows users to map SIG questions to specific templates and build unique vendor questionnaires. For example, a cyber security standard and advanced template for critical or outsourced services can be created.

S&P Global Market Intelligence provides a global service and has clients across the world, supporting all industry verticals. KY3P supports multiple languages; the SIG is available in all foreign languages supported by Shared Assessments.

In addition, KY3P provides data services, a range of assessments, and managed services. Our clients can access a range of vendor-specific data across cyber security, ESG, data privacy, and financials. KY3P assessments are conducted by an independent audit company and made available to clients through our unique utility model. Our managed service capability enables us to provide a full end-to-end third party risk management (TPRM) program on behalf of our clients. The KY3P Advisory Service provides TPRM program health checks and recommendations as well as advisory on implementing a TPRM program.
