CIISec secure exclusive access for members to Rizikon Assurance supplier risk management platform

27th January 2021

CIISec have secured an exclusive offer for our members of free access to Rizikon Assurance, the third-party/supplier risk management platform. Rizikon Assurance, developed by Crossword Cybersecurity plc, allows you to send high volumes of assessments at a time, monitor the progress of these assessments and let automation provide you with the reporting, scoring and intelligence to make informed decisions on your third party risk/supplier risk.

Rizikon Assurance improves the scalability, security and auditability of third-party assurance and due diligence through its automated, centralised and encrypted platform. CIISec members, for the lifetime of their membership, will be able to send a number of online assessments per year to suppliers and third parties to assess their security posture, pre- and post- contract award. Members will be able to  utilise assessments based on one of three industry security standards: Cyber Essentials, IASME Governance and ISO27001. The first 50 registrants will have access to all three online assessments.

Members will also be able to use Rizikon Assurance for ongoing assessment of supplier risk through pre-built cyber assessments that generate automated reporting when a completed assessment is received. This is an exclusive membership offer of a limited use version of Rizikon Assurance but members can upgrade to a full fill user of Rizikon Pro or Enterprise at any time.

Amanda Finch, CEO at CIISec, said: “Cyber security is one of the most pressing challenges for organisations of any size.  Supplier management and supplier assurance is a critical component of any security programme and CIISec has just launched our ABC Guide to Supplier Management to provide guidance to our members on this very subject. With the member offer for free access to Rizikon Assurance alongside the guide, our members can take advantage of an intuitive platform that will drive automation and efficiency into the process.”

Sean Arrowsmith, Group Sales Director at Crossword Cybersecurity PLC, said: “We are very pleased to have been able to work with CIISec to create this offer, which gives members an opportunity to experience how Rizikon Assurance and a framework for supplier management can help manage cyber risks across their supply chains.”

There is no obligation once signed up to the free edition as a CIISec member but the platform will immediately offer automation and increase efficiency to your supplier management programmes.
