    About the Truonix presentation:

    Truonix will discuss how to help companies mitigate the inherent risk in completing third-party security questionnaires. Security questionnaires are becoming more prevalent in client/vendor relationships and also as part of RFPs. They often create a significant barrier for small to medium size organizations in the acquisition of new customers.

    If your organization has received security questionnaires previously and when reviewing them you have asked yourself:

    • I am only an "X" person company, why am I getting this questionnaire?

    • Are these questionnaires negotiable?

    • We do not have all the controls the questionnaire is asking for, are we going to lose the contract?

    Truonix will discuss the importance of third-party security questionnaires, why vendors are requesting you to complete them and how to mitigate the underestimated risk of completing them.

    We hope to see you there!
