Atlas Release Notes

Summarize Risk Findings

Collaborate with vendors to remediate risk when reviewing a questionnaire

Collaborating with vendors to remediate risks is now easier with the ability to summarize your own findings. When reviewing a questionnaire, you can add your own notes, point out key findings with an indicated risk level, and build remediation plans to share with your business partners. Additionally, platform findings can be shared as a PDF or CSV internally and/or with a third party.

Custom Questionnaire Wizard with Conditional Questions

Create new and edit existing questionnaires in minutes

Create a custom template or edit an existing standard industry template — such as a NIST or ISO — in minutes without leaving the platform. The Questionnaire Wizard gives you an intuitive dashboard to create a custom questionnaire, defining the categories, questions, and responses. You can also incorporate conditional questions making certain questions visible based on earlier responses. Additionally, a new Templates section in Atlas houses all of your questionnaire templates in one central repository so you can manage them in one place.

Enhanced Reporting Dashboard

Gain actionable insights on your cybersecurity questionnaire cycle

Atlas’ enhanced reporting dashboard gives you more visibility into your full questionnaire lifecycle. Review in-depth metrics around the status of your sent questionnaires, average SecurityScorecard Ratings grade for your vendor companies, mean validation score, and completion time. Additionally, new filtering and export capabilities make it easier to gain actionable insights.

Third-Party Collaboration Link

Invite your third parties to complete or review a questionnaire

Quickly and securely collaborate with users outside of your organization to review and complete a questionnaire. Atlas’ Collaboration Link now gives you instant access to the designated questionnaire and the same roles as the person who invited them, excluding the Autocomplete and Look Up lens capability.

Compliance Questionnaire Templates

Assess your business partners’ compliance controls and remote workforce readiness

Atlas now offers questionnaire templates that map directly to critical industry regulations and standards so you can easily assess the key controls and overall compliance posture of your third parties. Stay up to date and make sure you have the right information about your vendors. The following questionnaires are now available under the Templates Tab:

    • Remote Workforce Business Continuity Planning 2020 — understand vendors’ remote workforce and business continuity preparedness. Learn more here.
    • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) 800-171 - assess vendors’ NIST standard controls.
    • CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) version 1.02 — assess vendors’ compliance with new Department of Defense standards.

Questionnaire Reviewer Instructions

Ensure that all questionnaire reviewers are on the same page

Questionnaire senders can now specify instructions for their teammates that review a completed assessment, such as how to review and what to look out for for individual questions. Ensure consistency and eliminate confusion when multiple team members are involved in reviewing a completed assessment. Leverage this new feature to cut the questionnaire cycle by aligning all of your team members who are involved in reviewing a completed questionnaire.
