13 November 2013– Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) is pleased to announce that Kennedy Consulting Research and Advisory, a leading analyst firm, has named Deloitte a global leader in cyber security consulting.
Kennedy’s recently released report, entitled Cyber Security Consulting 2013, addresses clients’ increasing need to seek help from consulting firms to guide them through the complexities of cyber security. As such, the report provides an assessment of cyber security consulting providers in terms of the relative breadth and depth of their cyber security consulting capabilities.
Tariq Ajmal, Information and Technology Risk leader, Deloitte Middle East, comments: “This top rating from Kennedy for cyber security services is just the latest in a long list of analyst accolades for Deloitte’s risk services. In recent months, analysts have lauded our governance, risk & compliance services; risk management consulting; security consulting; information security consulting; and more. It’s no boast to state that Deloitte’s eminence for risk services across various domains leads the market.”
The Kennedy report notes, “Deloitte brings a strong value proposition to cyber security consulting by melding its industry expertise, its ‘one approach, one model,’ cyber security-specific investments, and C-suite communication capabilities.”
“The Kennedy report clearly shows that, out of all the major players in the cyber security space, Deloitte has the most comprehensive set of capabilities,” noted Ajmal. “Effective cyber risk management is dependent on an integrated, full-spectrum approach, making Deloitte far and away the top choice for cyber security consulting.”
Fadi Mutlak, cyber-security leader at Deloitte Middle East added, “Deloitte’s top rating from Kennedy for cyber security services is gratifying but not surprising. Cyber ranks among Deloitte’s most important service offerings, and we have made significant investments in people, technology, and acquisitions to bolster cyber security capabilities. This report emphatically validates those investments.”
