Crossword Cybersecurity  announced that Chief Product Officer, Jake Holloway, will be speaking at the CIPS UK Conference 2019 (the leading procurement conference in the UK,)  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.

DXS International* (LON:DXSP) 6p £2.1m

This GPIT Futures award follows an evaluation of a tender to The Health & Social Care Information Centre (known as NHS Digital).

 GPIT Futures replaces the current GPSoC2 framework, where DXS is currently an accredited Supplier of Clinical Decision Support to UK Primary Care, and where our Core Solution, DXS Point of Care is currently centrally funded by the NHS.
