We recognize that information security resources are frequently overtaxed, and vendors must often balance the cost of responding to questionnaires with customers’ requirements for due diligence and oversight. Answering a security questionnaire can take a significant amount of time for scarce information security and IT resources. As a result, CORL offers a Data Reuse program to help vendors respond quickly to requests and prevent sales/implementation delays.
The Data Reuse program is designed to allow you to leverage previous questionnaire responses for new clients. When you are notified that a new client has requested an assessment, you will have the option to explicitly approve the reuse of your data for the new client. If you approve data reuse, your previous assessment response will be sent to you for review and update for changes that have occurred since your previous response. Any client-specific questions will also be sent to you for response. Your updated responses will be used for the assessment and will remain on file in a secure location to be used for future assessments. Many vendors find that data reuse significantly cuts down on turn around-times and related sales/implementation delays.
