Crossword Cybersecurity plc is sponsoring CIPS UK Conference 2019

23rd October 2019 – London, UK – Crossword Cybersecurity plc (AIM:CCS, “Crossword”, the “Company” or the “Group”) are pleased to announce that Chief Product Officer, Jake Holloway, will be speaking at the CIPS UK Conference 2019 on the importance of every organisation implementing a Supplier Assurance Framework. Jake’s talk will cover this in the context of a case study on Rizikon Assurance, the Company’s supplier assurance management portal. Crossword Cybersecurity plc is proud to sponsor the event.

Crossword’s flagship product, Rizikon Assurance, helps companies to gain visibility on the risks posed by third party suppliers. Jake will be introducing Rizikon Assurance 2.0 which combines intelligent questionnaires, dynamic supplier scorecards, and the new criticality-risk dashboard which makes supplier assurance far quicker and simpler than other methods.

Over 100 procurement senior managers are currently evaluating Rizikon Assurance for use in their enterprise, and a growing list of Rizikon Assurance users are quickly realising the benefits of a centralised approach to third party risk. The assessments range from GDPR, Modern Slavery, Anti-bribery and Corruption, to ISO 27001 standards and Cyber Security risks.

The CIPS Conference is the leading procurement conference in the UK, and last year’s event boasted 40+ expert procurement speakers across a wide range of topics. This year’s conference is expected to be bigger and better, with even more high-quality talks and exhibitors promised.

The conference will be held on the 31st October – 1st November 2019 at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London. If you are interested in reducing your supply chain risk then feel free to speak to Crossword’s friendly team at the Company’s stand, and make sure not to miss  Jake’s talk on Day 2, Stream 3 at 12:00pm.
