How to Initiate a Third Party Security Assessment (TPSA)
Department Members periodically identify the need to engage third party products or services to store and process University information.
Whenever this need arises, the Department requires Members to coordinate initiating a Third Party Security Assessment (TPSA) to confirm that appropriate security controls are in place before engaging the third party products or services.
Department Members must follow the procedures established by the Information Security Team to initiate and successfully complete the required review steps.
Please refer to these TPSA links for more information:

The Department IT/G team is available to assist with helping to complete these steps, as needed.
Thanks for your cooperation.
