Evantix Publishes Guide to Risk Assessment Templates

New E-Book Includes Checklist of Questions to Ask When Screening a New Vendor

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - November 12, 2014) - Evantix, a leading web-based vendor risk management platform, today announced it is releasing a new guide to using templates as part of the vendor risk assessment process. The e-book, Setting the Standard: How Vendor Risk Assessment Templates Simplify and Streamline the Onboarding Process, is available for free download at

Assessing third parties for risk is a challenge for many enterprises; screening new vendors takes on even added importance. The information gathered from an initial risk report will shape risk management decisions, so the assessment must be spot-on. Risk assessment templates can help ensure that screenings during the onboarding process are as thorough as possible. This e-book helps risk staffs by:

  • Explaining how a vendor risk assessment template works
  • Highlighting six benefits of using a template
  • Offering an 11-point checklist of questions a vendor risk assessment template shouldn't be without

"Developing, instituting, and maintaining a vendor risk assessment program can be an arduous task," says Jason James, Vice President of Risk Advisory Services at Evantix. "Screenings must ask the right questions, touch upon the important topics, and deliver the data necessary to drive your vendor risk decisions. Employing a template not only ensures that an assessment includes the content necessary to produce a successful risk report, but also gives you a foundation for future screenings. Our new e-book details what should be included in a template to help risk staffs assess new and existing vendors."
