Microsoft SSPA Assessment Program
If you provide services or products to Microsoft, or plan to in the near future, then you need to complete a Supplier Security and Privacy Assurance (SSPA) Data Protection Requirements (DPR) assessment. The SSPA DPR program is an initiative to improve and strengthen the security, transmission and reporting of data across all Microsoft suppliers that process Microsoft Personal Information or Microsoft Confidential Information as part of the execution of an active Master Supplier Services Contract. RSM is a Microsoft-qualified provider of these services and can help you navigate the requirements in a scalable fashion.
RSM provides an SSPA DPR assessment that offers a scalable and efficient approach for your company. RSM will provide a report with results for each applicable control to help your organization evaluate areas of strength and potential weakness. Our SSPA DPR assessment approach includes:
- Evaluation of SSPA DPR applicability

- Data classification reviews
- A letter asserting whether or not your organization is compliant, to be shared with Microsoft
