Your Shared Profile lets you proactively share your security posture and related documentation with current and prospective customers. This allows you to build trust with your business partners and shows that your organization is taking cybersecurity seriously.

It also means you’ll spend less time filling out manual assessments, customers will have an accurate and current view of your security posture, and you can focus on being proactive rather than reactive.

You can share the following security-related information on your Shared Profile:

  • Security ratings: Toggle the inclusion of your and your industry average security ratings. Learn more about security ratings here.

  • Security contact: Share contact information for the team or key employee who is responsible for your security. Most companies use a generic security email or the contact information for their Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

  • Company description: Help users quickly understand what your company does.

  • Security questionnaires: Proactively share complete security questionnaires and reduce time spent on answering assessments. This also benefits your customers and prospects who will be able to assess you in less time.

  • Supporting documentation: Share security-related documentation or compliance certifications such as PCI DSS, SOC 2, ISO 27001, FedRAMP, etc.

Once you add your security information, you’ll be able to publish your Shared Profile and choose to set it as a public or private profile:

  • Public profile: Any UpGuard user can view your Shared Profile

  • Private profile: UpGuard users have to request and be granted access to view your Shared Profile

Regardless of which sharing setting you choose, you’ll also be able to invite non-UpGuard users to view your Shared Profile.
