The standard response process to a security questionnare:

Stage 1

You are working on a sale and the buyer sends you a security questionnaire via email. You have to respond to close the sale.  

Stage 2

You forward the email to legal for help. It's 300 questions long.  

Stage 3

Legal forwards the email to overworked IT or security engineers for assistance.

Stage 4

Weeks, sometimes months go by. The prospect is losing trust and the team is pointing fingers. It's an unhappy situation.

Result

Revenues are slipping, costs are rising and no one can fully diagnose what is happening. Surely, it can't be those security questionnaires? Yes, it can and don't call me Shirley.

Shadow IT is very furstrating, especially when contracts require you to list your third-party service providers who have access to customer data.

If accounts payable doesn't catch the "free" service providers who charge you in data, SPR means no more manual tracking on spreadsheets.

The purpose of SPR is to bring efficiency to third party risk. Less time on paperwork and manual process and more time on subjective reasoning.
