Cynomi and Grant Thornton Partner to Enhance Cybersecurity Services for SMBs

Cynomi, a leader in the field of virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) platforms, has today announced a partnership with Grant Thornton UK LLP, one of the largest professional services organisations in the world. Through this collaboration, Grant Thornton intends to leverage Cynomi’s cutting-edge vCISO platform to rapidly expand its virtual CISO services business.

Grant Thornton and Cynomi’s CISO Mission

Cynomi was founded in 2020,driven by the passion to ensure that every organisation has a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). The company has a channel-only approach and already works with more than 50 partners internationally. On the other hand, Grant Thornton is a global leader amongst independent assurance, tax, and advisory organisations. The UK member firm is part of an international group that provides jobs for over 62 thousand people in more than 140 countries.

The Cynomi platform automates the vCISO’s time-consuming manual tasks like risk assessment, compliance readiness, cyber posture reporting, creation of individualised security policies and remediation plans, and optimisation of task management through the use of proprietary AI algorithms and CISO-level knowledge and expertise.

The company’s vCISO platform is designed to simplify the job of a virtual CISO by integrating state-of-the-art technology with CISO expertise. Providers of security services may now offer virtual CISO services at scale using Cynomi’s AI-powered, automated vCISO platform.

Everything a virtual chief information security officer (vCISO) requires, such as risk and compliance assessments, customised security policies, actionable remediation plans with prioritised tasks, task management tools for continuous management, and customer-facing reports, is automatically generated by the company’s multitenant platform.

“We are honored to collaborate with Grant Thornton, a leader in the professional services industry,” said David Primor, CEO and founder of Cynomi: ” This partnership is a strategic step towards our goal to address the SMB market need for CISO-level cybersecurity.”

As cyber attacks on small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) become more common, it is crucial that CISO services be made available to companies of all sizes. The partnership between Grant Thornton and Cynomi is an integral aspect of a bigger initiative to help SMBs minimise their exposure to cybersecurity risks.
