SSPA Compliance

Preparing You for SSPA Compliance

As a designated Preferred Assessor, Clark Nuber is well-equipped to navigate you through Microsoft’s Supplier Security and Privacy Assurance (SSPA) compliance process. Designed to drive adoption of rigorous security standards through an ongoing annual compliance cycle, the SSPA program includes reviewing up to 52 Data Protection Requirements (DPRs) and achieving compliance with each requirement applicable to your business.

Microsoft requires strict security protocols from its suppliers to protect information it defines as Confidential Data and Personal Data. At a minimum, the SSPA program provides assurance to Microsoft about the ongoing state of security and privacy controls in place at your business. Beyond that, the program helps you understand the additional responsibilities of the work Microsoft awarded to you.

Our professionals will work personally with your team to develop a plan, answer your questions, and prepare you to meet the SSPA’s high standard.

Helping You Navigate the Process

For those working through an SSPA certification, the process can be daunting. Clark Nuber’s professionals will help you navigate the process by:

  • Interpreting the intent of each requirement and the practical application for your business
  • Guiding you through the DPR and the necessary documentation using our custom tools
  • Consulting with you on improving cybersecurity protocols
  • Understanding the deadlines and options for extensions of time
