The Digital Marketplace and G-Cloud Framework make it easier for public sector organisations, including agencies and arm’s length bodies to find cloud technology and specialist services for their digital projects. Using the marketplace makes it faster and cheaper than entering into individual procurement contracts, so government organisations can move quicker to realise their digital transformation projects. Being on the framework will allow public sector bodies the opportunity to quickly sign up to using Rizikon allowing them to rapidly improve their supplier assurance programmes.
Rizikon Assurance contains standard questionnaires on subjects such as cyber security, GDPR, supplier on-boarding, modern slavery, anti-bribery & corruption, but customers also can create their own question sets and scoring approaches, enabling a 360-degree view of supply chain risk in a single pane of glass. This helps organisations identify, prioritise and mitigate third party risks that may exist in any area, whilst streamlining and managing the onboarding and supplier management processes.
Crossword’s leading consulting services will also be available, with its team of industry experts offering a full range of services including Cyber Assurance and Auditing, Penetration testing, Third Party Assurance and it’s Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service.
Sean Arrowsmith, Group Sales Director, of Crossword, commented; “We are very pleased to be accepted on to the G-Cloud 12 Framework. Our Rizikon Assurance cloud-based service is already used by a number of public sector organisations and the Digital Marketplace will make it even easier for others that want mitigate third party risks in areas such as cyber security, GDPR and diversity, to get up and running, confident that Crossword can provide the solutions and support to meet their needs.”
