Basic Profile

A Whistic Profile simplifies the vendor assessment process, saving your InfoSec team countless hours previously spent answering questionnaires while helping your sales team close deals faster.

A Whistic Profile enables you to:

  • Consolidate all of your standard questionnaires, audits, and certifications in one place.

    • Collaborating with peers is currently a paid feature only.

  • Build trust at the outset of customer relationships by sharing your Whistic Profile proactively with prospects.

  • Save time by responding to questionnaire requests with your complete Whistic Profile.

This article covers how you get started setting up your Whistic Profile.

Note: If you do not have Basic Profile enabled on your account please reach out to support@whistic.com for assistance.

Share Count

Total number of Profile shares remaining for the month will be displayed and will reset the first of each calendar month. There will be three shares allowed within the calendar month, if the shares go unused it will not roll over to the next calendar month.

Sharing to one or multiple recipients from the same organization will count as one share. When sharing to multiple recipients from different organizations this will count as multiple shares, one for each recipient. Shares within your organization are unlimited and will not affect the share count.

Imports from the Trust Catalog will not count as shares, extending to recipients re-accessing the shared profile multiple times.

Upgrade to a paid account for unlimited sharing with customers.
