TOP 20 accountants MHA MacIntyre Hudson has signed a deal with technology company Crossword Cybersecurity to co-market Crossword’s new cyber threat risk analysis tool to its clients.
Under the terms of the agreement, MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s partners will introduce the tool, Rizikon, to its large client base of SMEs.
The risk assessment tool, which is based on research undertaken by the Centre for Cyber and Security Sciences at City University, London, is particularly valuable to financial and legal services businesses where there is a regulatory requirement to demonstrate effective cyber security.
Rakesh Shaunak, Chairman of MHA MacIntyre Hudson, said: “For our client firms in financial and professional services, there are regulatory requirements to demonstrate that effective cyber security protections are in place, and we believe Rizikon will also be a great help here.”
