Pandemic Questionnaire Guidance for Third-Party Risk
In response to the unprecedented commercial environment created by the COVID-19 outbreak DVV Solutions and ProcessUnity have released a complimentary Third-Party Pandemic Questionnaire (download below – for free, no registration required)
Given the increasing reliance organisations have on Third-Parties, Suppliers and Partners it is critical to understand the controls, resilience and contingency plans your “extended enterprise” has (or more importantly does not have) in place as part of your supplier management, screening and onboarding.
New risks, while sometimes identified and evaluated during business-as-usual processing, take on a greater sense of importance and time sensitivity. For example, companies may need to shift their focus to concentration, geo-political and financial risk while adjusting the lens of cybersecurity to ensure all work-from-home controls and procedures are operational and effective.

Utilising the Third-Party Pandemic Questionnaire:
The Third-Party Pandemic Questionnaire provides a set of questions that quickly assess and gather relevant, event-driven information on each part of your supply chain. Use it to open lines of communication with your key suppliers and helps you to plan and protect against potential interruptions in product or service delivery. It can be used in many ways, including:
As a reference to develop your own pandemic-response questionnaire
As a ready-to-send survey to vet your critical and high-risk vendors
As a template in your Third-Party Risk Management automation platform for immediate and future use
You’re only as strong as your weakest link
There’s never a more vital time to start thinking seriously about the security posture of your extended enterprise.
