  1. Utilizing the data risk category definitions and examples provided in the Data Risk Classification Policy found here: https://answers.fredonia.edu/x/j4I4, please confirm the risk category for the University data that you are requesting to be used with this solution. 
  2. In accordance with SUNY Procurement Policy, a HECVAT (HECVAT (Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Tool) report is required.

In cases where Category II Private (e.g. Title IV or FERPA) or Category III Restricted data (e.g. PHI, Social Security Numbers, Credit Card Information, etc) are being stored, transmitted, or processed via the vendor, the full HECVAT must be provided by the vendor. If the vendor is supplying software that is designed to run on SUNY Fredonia’s local computing infrastructure (network, database, desktops/laptops, etc…) or is running a purpose-built application (often referred to as an agent) in conjunction with a piece of hardware then a HECVAT On-Premise is required. 
  3. In accordance with SUNY Procurement Policy, a 3rd Party attestation of security practices is required.

At this time, it has been determined that both an ISO 27001 or a FedRAMP certification along with the detailed certificate review findings related to security controls are suitable substitutes for a SOC2 Type 2 report. The primary goal is for the vendor to provide an audit of their security practices from a 3rd party that attests to their overall security practices.
