Linda Tuck Chapman is pleased to be an Advisory Board member of the Shared Assessments Program managed by The Santa Fe Group.  Shared Assessments is a member-driven consortium of corporations, IT service providers and assessment firms, including the Big Four accounting firms. Shared Assessments’ mission is to offer rigorous standards for managing risk associated with security, privacy and business continuity controls in IT outsourcing relationships and provide its members with critical knowledge about trends in global outsourcing. The Shared Assessments Program currently has companies representing a range of industries including financial services, retail and healthcare. Shared Assessments’ members provide input to the tools offered – the AUP (Agreed Upon Procedures) and the SIG (Standard Information Gathering Questionnaire), which are used for evaluating vendor controls for IT security, privacy, business continuity, and other third party risks. These tools allow outsourcers, service providers and assessment firms to save time, resources and increase efficiencies in the assessment process and reduce the need for on-site assessments.
