The Princeton-based cybersecurity firm of Churchill & Harriman was awarded the “Founders Award” by Catherine Allen, Founder of the Shared Assessments Program earlier this month in Washington, D.C.

In presenting the award, Allen thanked Ken Peterson, Churchill & Harriman CEO for “Churchill & Harriman’s unparalleled commitment and dedication” to the program and its members.

Shared Assessments is widely considered to be the trusted source for third party risk management. Peterson serves on the program’s Advisory Board and has provided leadership to the program since 2006.

Churchill & Harriman has helped mature many Shared Assessment Program tools year after year to help in the fight to ensure enterprise resilience for entities across the world.

“I accept this prestigious award on behalf of my entire team at Churchill & Harriman,” Peterson said. “We are very proud to receive this award from Catherine Allen and Shared Assessments, true thought leaders engaged in a very important mission. We are honored to contribute to a program that is fighting such an important battle as global third party risk governance.

“Third party or vendor risk is a top five risk to any business or government. Churchill & Harriman is privileged to help our clients manage third party or vendor risks by employing our own techniques, and best practice solutions and tools, including those from Shared Assessments,” he added.

Peterson urged all to get involved with programs such as Shared Assessments that promote sound risk governance.
