The Auto-Risk Scoring feature is part of our Vendor Risk Management product. With auto risk scoring, each vendor will receive a score that reflects the level of risk they pose to your organization based on the criteria you have established. This can help you make more informed decisions about vendor selection, risk mitigation, and ongoing Vendor management.

Configure Auto Risk Scoring
