Cyber Security and Cyber Essentials

Supporting techUK members towards Cyber Essentials certification with cyber security assessment.

Use Rizikon Assurance to self-assess your cyber security alignment with the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme

Crossword Cybersecurity is supporting techUK members towards Cyber Essentials certification by offering free access to its Rizikon platform for a single-use cyber security assessment.

techUK SME members will be able to use Rizikon Assurance to self-assess their cyber security alignment with the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme. On completion of a self-assessment questionnaire, members will receive a report with a high level cyber risk overview and ‘Scorecard’ to help them identify areas of weakness.

The first 40 techUK members to complete the assessment will also be eligible for a one-hour consultation with a Crossword cyber security specialist to discuss their report in more detail. Should the member firm want to move towards formal Cyber Essentials certification, Crossword will assist them with achieving certification for a fixed fee.

Additionally, Crossword will offer limited free use of the Rizikon Assurance platform to techUK members interested in using the platform to assess their supply chain risks in a range of areas.

Rizikon Assurance is a secure, encrypted portal which puts an organisation in control of managing the financial, regulatory and reputational risks it indirectly carries when working with third parties. Rizikon contains standard questionnaires on subjects such as cyber security, GDPR, supplier on-boarding, modern slavery, and anti-bribery and corruption.
