Release Notes


February 18, 2020
by Ken Fraser

Rizikon Assurance has been updated to version 2.2 as of 17th February 2020. This release includes:

Scorecard Improvements
More source information has been added to scorecards, and users can now navigate directly from a scorecard to the origin of the underlying data, and source information tool-tips have been updated to show the user that provided the data.

This workflow improvement allows managers to track the provenance of the data on scorecards, and drill down to locate and remedy the highest priority issues.

Security Updates
All attachments added to questions will be scanned for malicious code.  There have been some user interface changes to display the different statuses of attachments, which can be seen by:

  • Blue icon (unscanned)

  • Grey icon (scanning)

  • Green icon (scanned with no malicious code detected)

  • Red icon (scanned with signs of malicious code)

Attachments will be unavailable for download while being scanned or in the event of an attachment being suspected as containing malicious code.  Once the upload has completed, users do not have to wait for the scan to complete before leaving the page as normal.

Bulk Upload Improvements
Unnecessary mandatory fields have been removed from the bulk importing templates to improve the user experience of this feature, specifically the "Assessment Status" column. The new templates are available from the bulk data upload page as usual.

Furthermore, a new "Default Scorecard" field has been added to the Organisations upload template, allowing this information to be set quickly and easily from a CSV file.

Bug Fixes

Multiple bugs have been fixed, including the display issues with the 6x6 Criticality dashboard displaying old values, especially when the default scorecard has changed.  Furthermore, users will no longer see a "Processing refused" error when they have been appropriately logged out due to inactivity, and the "impact" column in the bulk data upload template for Organisations should now also work as intended, allowing users to set Organisation Impact in bulk.

We have also made some changes to the way we handle emails, with the intention of improving reliability and delivery.

Rizikon Assurance has been updated to version 2.1 as of 31st October 2019. This release includes:


All users will now be able to see a notifications dropdown on the navigation bar, next to User Options. This will allow users to receive notifications from within the system on such things as Assigned assessments, Comments, Submissions and Assessments being Sent for Clarification, among others.

To View a notification, click the bell icon. This will show notifications from the last 30 days, filtered by "unread" first. Users can mark a notification as "read" by clicking the orange dot on the left, or delete it by clicking the cross on the right.

This feature will expand in future updates and will integrate closely with the other parts of the system to greatly improve workflow.


Scorecard Improvements

Scorecard has received various improvements to functionality and display.  Managers can now:

  • Pin attachments from assessments to scorecard tables, allowing easy access to evidence directly from the scorecard page.

  • See the source of information for table entries, allowing for a more transparent and useful display of data.

  • See combined questions formatted properly, with answers displayed together.

  • View long answers on a scorecard by hovering over the "+" icon to see the full result with improved formatting.

  • Directly select the score of a risk segment when manually entering data, rather than having to input a value from 1-5.

The system labels for "Impact", "Criticality" and "Scorecard" are now also all customisable, allowing for a seamless integration with existing terminology and procedures.


User Experience Improvements and Bug Fixes

Various aspects of the user interface have been improved, including the "Details" pages for Contacts, Organisations and Assessments. Actions are now located on the left hand side, and the options have been redesigned to highlight the primary actions and improve the user experience.

The Criticality Dashboard has also received some usability improvements, including the ability to click anywhere on the cells rather than the contained number.

Multiple bugs have been fixed, including the display issues with Risk Segment labels being cut-off by the scorecard tables, and the calendar selection appearing underneath the navigation bar for some questions.


If you have any questions or issues, please let us know.

Rizikon Assurance has been updated to version 2.0 as of 3rd September 2019.

This release includes;

Dashboard 2.0: Criticality Distribution Chart

The Organisation Criticality Distribution is a 6x6 matrix that can plot "Impact" against "Risk" for all suppliers on the system. This appears for all scorecard users of Rizikon Assurance 2.0 on the Summary Page.

Also appearing on the Organisations page as an additional filtering option, this new viewpoint of Impact and Risk empowers Assurance Managers to categorise, navigate and prioritise with a view to the most critical organisations to their business.

Scorecard Official Release

Organisation Scorecards centralise data held about a third party or supplier into one, 360° view of risk. They combine risk information from Rizikon Assurance's intelligent Assessments across multiple topics, as well as data from Companies House and credit-scoring from Creditsafe. To view a scorecard, navigate to the organisation details page and press the "Scorecard" button on the actions menu, or use the Criticality Distribution Chart to go directly to the scorecard for an organisation.

Scorecards are split into three main segments, with Key Information about the organisation, Highlighted Risk Details, and a Criticality chart with a breakdown of risk scoring on a segment by segment basis.  Scorecards are highly customisable, and can also be downloaded into PDF format.

Creditsafe Integration Official Release

Rizikon Assurance 2.0 also includes the official release of our integration with Creditsafe, and their 320-million records of company information and credit risk database.

Organisations can be linked with Creditsafe listed companies to verify key information, and a report can be downloaded to feed credit risk data into scorecards. Full company reports can also be viewed in the system, allowing quick and easy credit risk checks of Third Parties.

Requesting Creditsafe report data and viewing a full report will use Creditsafe tokens, which can be added to the system as required.

Bug Fixes and user experience improvements

Several bugs have been fixed, especially around formatting, displaying information and tool-tips correctly, the behaviour of actions when using the browser back button, stability, the syncing of information correctly on new graphics, and other minor issues and improvements.
