Cynomi and Grant Thornton Partner to Enhance Cybersecurity Services for SMBs


Cynomi, a leading vCISO platform provider and a technological pioneer in the virtual Chief Information Security Officer space, today announced its collaboration with Grant Thornton UK LLP, one of the largest professional services firms in the world.

The partnership will empower Grant Thornton’s virtual CISO capabilities, helping the firm efficiently scale its virtual CISO services business using Cynomi’s innovative vCISO platform.

Cynomi’s vCISO platform combines cutting-edge technology with CISO knowledge and know-how to streamline the virtual CISO work. Security service providers leverage Cynomi’s AI-powered, automated vCISO platform to provide virtual CISO services at scale – without scaling their existing resources.

Cynomi’s multitenant platform automatically generates everything a vCISO needs to enhance efficiency: risk and compliance assessments, tailored security policies, actionable remediation plans with prioritized tasks, task management tools for ongoing management and customer-facing reports.

“We are honored to collaborate with Grant Thornton, a leader in the professional services industry,” said David Primor, CEO and founder of Cynomi: “With the increasing threat of cyber attacks on SMBs, it is more important than ever to take a proactive approach and make CISO expertise available to businesses of all sizes. This partnership is a strategic step towards our goal to address the SMB market need for CISO-level cybersecurity.”

“The Grant Thornton – Cynomi collaboration is part of a larger effort to provide SMBs with high-quality cybersecurity services to reduce risks,” said Gary Bostock, Head of Incident Response and Cyber Defence at Grant Thornton UK. “We are excited to integrate Cynomi’s vCISO platform into our day-to-day processes to make our cybersecurity service standardised and scalable. We look forward to offering this new level of cybersecurity to more organisations regardless of their size.”
