Red Piranha launches ‘Partner Assurance Program’


Red Piranha has announced their ‘Partner Assurance Program.’ An initiative developed to provide a level of assurance for our products and services delivered to end-customers in relation to ensuring that Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) overall data security, compliance are meeting industry best practice, thus reducing their vendor risk and strengthening their cyber supply chain risk (SCRM).

To provide a level of confidence and improve the overall standards of cybersecurity with Partners, Red Piranha will work alongside Partners and assist them in managing the supply chain risk they pose as a vendor to their clients by developing a holistic security program that uses a defence-in-depth approach integrating compliance policies and security controls within an information security management system.

The program is based upon the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO) and the Australian Federal Government’s Essential Eight, so partners can understand the security standards they’re expected to meet. It also provides confidence that Risk Management Assessments are conducted uniformly.

Partners will benefit from being included in the secure supply chain initiative provided by the program, with Red Piranha being able to include them in contracts requiring high assurance levels. One example of this is the recently released Defence Industry Security Program contractor channel, with Red Piranha providing a high level of assurance on service delivery to the Australian Defence Industry contractor network.
