About OneTrust Vendorpedia Third-Party Risk Solutions

OneTrust Vendorpedia helps simplify third-party risk for everyone involved. Our solutions support dozens of global laws, standards, and control frameworks, such as NIST, ISO, CSA CAIQ, SIG, HIPAA, PCI DSS, NYDFS, GDPR, EBA, CCPA and many more.

The platform consists of the following technologies to empower you and your vendors.

  • Third-Party Risk Management software enables you to create automation workflows to manage every vendor engagement, from onboarding to offboarding. With the technology, you can easily: build your vendor inventory and streamline vendor screening; automate vendor risk assessments with intelligent risk flagging; reduce risks with automated risk mitigation workflows; monitor vendor risk and performance over time; and demonstrate compliance with powerful reporting.
  • Third-Party Risk Exchange software automates vendor risk analysis and control identification by bringing together a global community of organizations dedicated to sharing security, privacy, and compliance information. Because vendors actively participate in the community, Exchange customers can access risk analytics and control gap reports on thousands of their vendors without ever getting bogged down in the back-and-forth of an assessment. Further, Exchange customers can prioritize their vendors with out-of-the-box Auto Inherent Risk calculations; leverage built-in cyber risk scores to see the cybersecurity posture of their vendors; and screen third parties using Trust Profiles that include detailed security, privacy, and compliance information.
  • Third-Party Risk Monitoring capabilities enable organizations to leverage pre-built plugins to critical information sources, alerting them when new risks and compliance issues arise. Organizations can also act on these and other changes, such as sending a reassessment when a contract expires, or a new compliance issue is flagged.
  • Questionnaire Response Automation software to help you automatically answer incoming security questionnaires. The tool offers a simple dashboard to collaborate on incoming questionnaires, store all your questionnaire answers and security documentation, as well as autocomplete any assessment. Our autocomplete technology uses your saved answers and matches them to new questions using Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML), and OneTrust Athena™ AI. Within the tool, organizations can also create and share a Trust Profile, aggregating key security, privacy, and compliance documentation to proactively build trust with inquiring customers.

OneTrust’s third-party risk solutions are also recognized by customers in Gartner Peer Insights, “OneTrust VRM is a Must Have For Your Organization! Not only is their product the best in the business, but their knowledgeable staff make implementation easy and set you up for long term success utilizing the platform.” – Gartner® Peer Insights Review from Security and Risk Management Professional, 30B+ USD Organizations
