We provide clear answers management to vendors responding to due diligence inquiries about their data privacy and cybersecurity practices.
In 2011, security questionnaires were an infrequent occurrence. To handle them, vendors simply absorbed them into their already over burdened legal, IT, security engineering and sales departments. Back then, the occasional
security questionnaire was not a big problem.
Those days are gone. Today, security questionnaires are more and more frequent, thanks to data privacy regulations, and vendors are drowining in them. We hated them so much that we built a company around them. Now, we tackle security questionnaires everyday with the goal of helping our customers. The more we suffer, the better our product becomes.
According to Ponemon, the average company spends 15,000 hours per year completing assessments. That could be roughly $1.5M of your company's payroll each year and it does not take into account lost or delayed revenues. Security questionnaires are a problem and we are on a mission to fix that problem.
No one person can respond to all the questions which is why we built in collaboration.
We think this one is self explanatory.
Our goal is to automate manual processes.
We believe that using new technologies is key to solving this very difficult problem.
Saving our customers time and money.

Let's work together.
IT and security teams are spending more and more of their time responding to questions than they are actually implementing controls or identifying threats.
GDPR, CCPA, NY Shield, etc. Regulations require that controllers or businesses conduct due diligence on their vendors.
Due diligence slows down the procurement process.
If you have to respond to security questionnaires, then you know how they become the hot potato in the office. One customer told us they were going to hire an intern whose sole role was to handle them. We felt sorry for that intern, so we decided to build a tool that is cheaper than an intern and prevents mental health problems.
One customer told us that they desperately wanted a solution that hosted the answers, made it easy to work with other internal stakeholders, provided some sort of text based search, with maybe some NLP in there, and kept it all neat and organized. So that's what we did.
ClearOPS is on a mission to build a company that adopts as many of the privacy by design and security by design concepts as possible.
