When TPRM Meets LLM: The “Aha” Moment

TPRM is having an “aha” moment with the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI), particularly Large Language Models (LLMs).


For decades, the industry has relied on manual processes, exchanging reports, evidence and questionnaires. Not to mention all these processes consume countless expert hours. But now, LLMs present an opportunity to transform TPRM, unlocking a new era of efficiency, effectiveness, and deeper insights.


With this mindset, about a year ago, Black Kite Research built the Unique Parser 2.0 AI engine that relied on a foundational language model to ease third party process. The engine leverages a foundational language model to streamline and simplify the third-party assessment process.


Parser 2.0's capabilities extend far beyond mere natural language processing. It operates as an intelligent system with the understanding and expertise of a cybersecurity and TPRM professional. This allows it to:


  • Comprehend reports and questionnaires: Parser 2.0 can ingest and analyze vast amounts of textual information, deciphering the meaning and extracting key details.

  • Map findings to industry and custom controls: The AI engine automatically aligns extracted information with relevant industry and company-specific controls, providing a clear picture of compliance and potential risks.
