Security assessments have typically relied on unreliable and labor-intensive approaches such as email and spreadsheets to collect and manage supporting data. The problem becomes worse as organizations need to assess their third-party vendors for compliance with emerging regulatory requirements. Learn how Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire helps you automate and unify your technical and procedural assessments onto a single platform, reducing complexity and accelerating audits.
The practice of third-party assessments presents a growing challenge for security teams to tackle manually due to the rising volume of end-user devices and organizations migrating to third-party hybrid public/private cloud environments. In this talk, Jonathan Osmolski, Manager, Information Governance at Pekin Insurance will discuss how Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire provided a turnkey solution that easily replicated its existing spreadsheet-based assessment methods. He will explain how SAQ made it easy for Pekin Insurance to centralize assessments and provide comprehensive reporting on for technical teams, business partners and auditors. He will also illustrate how automating third party assessments can help to integrate a cloud-based SAQ within a broader security and compliance ecosystem.

Security assessments drastically reduce your organization’s risk of suffering a data breach by identifying poor InfoSec and privacy practices among vendors, partners, contractors, and other third parties. For most businesses, these assessments are a slow, unscalable, manual process that strains InfoSec teams and creates a backlog of security evaluations.
