Customer security questionnaires, also known as vendor due diligence, are risk assessments of a product or service before an organization purchases and implements something that makes them vulnerable to a cyberattack.
These assessments may include the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ), Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) Questionnaire (SIG and SIG lite) and Vendor Security Assessment Questionnaire (VSAQ) or similar compilations of security-related questions.
Security questionnaires are each customer’s opportunity to perform due diligence and ensure your product or service abides by the security industry best practices. This crucial evaluation step is also annually required for compliance with many security standards including the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), Center for Internet Security (CIS), Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), Security Trust Assurance and Risk (STAR) and the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).
Unfortunately, performing this type of due diligence for customer after customer can consume time and resources that many organizations just don’t have to spare.
