When two companies want to do business, especially if one is a service provider, they will send a due diligence request regarding respecting privacy laws. These questionnaires can be 50 questions to over 1,000. Is there any way to help businesses with these astonishingly long surveys?
Caroline McCaffery and her team at ClearOPS are dedicated to helping you navigate this process efficiently. Caroline noticed there was a significant communication gap between a client’s lawyers, privacy professionals, and the security team. Factor in the sales team, and you have an even broader gap. She realized that maybe there’s a way to answer all the questions without requiring so much valuable time and resources. Caroline and her business partner started collecting public data for companies first, then utilized her previous AI experience so companies could use their private data to fill in answers from previous questionnaires automatically. The result? Much faster results for lengthy questionnaires.
