Welcome to the Trusted Partner Network (TPN) Assessment Process.
Please use this resource to guide you through your initial and ongoing assessments.
You can find the TPN Assessment infographic process here.
Complete the Groundwire Security TPN Mini-Questionnaire here.
Complete the TPN Vendor Assessment form here.
Once the request has been fulfilled, please complete the initial and extended questionnaire via the TPN Vendor Portal.
During that process, you will be able to nominate your preferred assessor. Please choose either James Bourne or Eugene Purugganan.
Once questionnaires are completed and Assessor assigned we will send you a quote and the Vendor Sponsored Security Agreement to sign.
As soon as the quote is approved by yourselves and TPN Vendor Sponsored Security Agreement signed, we send this to the TPN.
You will receive an invoice directly from the TPN for the agreed amount along with a copy of the fully executed agreement.
Once payment is received by the TPN, your assessment questionnaire is released to your assessor.
We will then schedule a kickoff meeting and remote assessment interview or onsite assessment date(s) with you and submit a materials request.
Once your Assessor has completed their write-up, your Assessor will submit the draft assessment report to the TPN.
The draft version of the report will be released to you for review. Your Assessor will work with you on any inaccuracies or invalid remediation items as necessary.
Once you approve the draft report, your Assessor will submit the report to the TPN for final quality assurance.
The TPN will then review, quality assure and publish your report. The quality assurance process can take up to 10 business days.
Once the report is published, you will receive your TPN logos and accreditation.
You will then work with the TPN, via the Vendor Portal, to remediate any findings.
Ensure to get in touch with us 3 months prior to your expiry date in order for us to arrange the re-assessment process.
