The Shared Assessments Program has been setting the standard in third party risk management since 2005, when the Big Four and six global banks collaborated to form Shared Assessments to address the inefficiencies surrounding vendor risk management. Using a robust compilation of questions, the SIG gathers pertinent information to determine how security risks are managed across a spectrum of 18 risk control areas, or “domains,” within a service provider’s environment. It was developed to enable a service provider to compile complete information about these risk domains in one document.

The packages for the 2019, 2020, and 2021 SIG questionnaires are available. Lite, core, and full question sets are included in the question packs. A single import file is used for all questions, but each question is tagged to its corresponding question set in the "Questionnaire" field.
