Not so much a question about your product, but I am interested in learning about timing of questionnaires and how we should prepare for them.

Is it common for these to be sent even with something like a SOC 2 Type 2?

Is getting a questionnaire a potential indicator of where you are in a deal - say for example they may be evaluating another SaaS platform but have not said they are out of the running?

How much time would you say is saved by using AI Vs having a running list of questions and answers and updating it occasionally?

Over the years I’ve worked with start-ups and enterprise companies (background in DoD). As a threat intelligence analyst, what is the best way to support due diligence efforts? I’ll occasionally get questions about the state of our security, but it’s not routine.

When does it make sense to get a tool like this? We only get a handful of requests eac month.

What are the repercussions of providing an answer that the vendor doesn’t like? I have only been through this twice, and I never got feedback.

I work for a small startup (6 people). We have a SaaS tool and I expect we may get these (security questions) in the future. Any advice for our small team as we don’t have an official security person--I’m IT and an engineer.
