With the growing need for software, applications, and tools migrating to the cloud combined with regulatory compliance and the need to protect privacy and data, assessments can seem like a bottomless pit. How do we document, assess vendor security, and streamline this process? There are many types of audits and assessments that can be used to help facilitate these goals. This session will help in understanding how to document these assessments, understand how to read the reports, and streamline the process to be repeatable.

Outcomes: Understand the ways to document 3rd party assessments to include documenting any risks or mitigations. Learn how to read and know the difference amongst SOC reports and other provided assurances. Collaborate on ways to streamline the process and maturity models.
