LONDON, Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EY has been named one of the world's top cybersecurity consulting organizations to watch in 2017 by Cybersecurity Ventures, a global research and publishing company focused on the cybersecurity industry.
Of the 500 global companies listed in the Cybersecurity 500 report, the EY organization was ranked number 15 overall, ahead of other consulting organizations that provide cybersecurity products and services.
Paul van Kessel, EY Global Advisory Cybersecurity Leader, says:
"We are proud to be one of the highest ranked cybersecurity consulting companies in the report. Our ranking reflects our deep understanding of cyber threats and our close collaboration with clients worldwide. Cybersecurity Ventures' recognition is testament to EY's industry-leading approach, which is focused on clients' entire cyber ecosystem, including the 'human element,' which is so critical to addressing cybersecurity challenges. This acknowledgement by Cybersecurity Ventures confirms the hard work of the EY cybersecurity and risk teams and the recent investments we have made in these services."
Chad Holmes, Principal of Ernst & Young LLP in the U.S and. Cybersecurity Leader, says:
"Cybersecurity breaches are always a matter of 'when', not 'if.' That requires an enterprise-wide approach with experienced people, efficient processes and innovative technology. The launch of our Managed Security Operations Center in June 2015 and the US-firm's alliance with the US based Los Alamos National Laboratory, formed in August 2015, have been significant investments over the past year."
The EY risk and cybersecurity group has more than 14,500 practitioners in member firms of more than 150 countries. They advise on large, transformational cybersecurity improvement programs that focus on cyber threat management, identity and access management, data protection, privacy and "post-incident" services. EY services are end-to-end — from assessments to managed services — and underpinned by robotics and analytics capabilities.
