Supplier Security Evaluation (SSE)
Download the executive summary

The SSE Accelerator Tool provides an easy-to-use, spreadsheet based method to assess the information security status of an individual supplier or a group of suppliers. The tool also probes the relationship between the acquirer and the supplier, information security status, of the supplier and the contractual and exit arrangements, providing a complete picture of a supplier at a particular point in time.

One of the tool’s core functionalities has been upgraded in 2020 to provide more flexibility for acquirer organisations to tailor their questionnaires to include only those questions required, depending for example on the risk posture of the supplier or the type of service or product offered.
