Exostar’s Partner Information Manager (PIM) is a risk management tool that leverages information from trusted sources to provide a partner (buyer) with a supplier’s current and potential risk and impact. PIM allows a company to complete a questionnaire (Cybersecurity Questionnaire or NIST SP 800-171) once for the partner organization, and then later share, with the company’s approval, the same results with other contractors using the company’s products and services. This ask once and share model reduces the burden of completing multiple questionnaires. Additionally, PIM provides contractors with a consistent set of minimum cyber security expectations for suppliers.
If your company was invited to use PIM and complete a questionnaire, there is no fee to use the application. If your company is ready to explore PIM and would like to start assessing companies they do business with, please see additional resources below.
