Justice & Security Global Centre of Excellence

We have deep global industry experience across the entire justice and security sector, including cyber security. Find out how we help our clients.


KPMG works with all levels of government (federal, state, local, agencies) to help them respond to policy and service delivery challenges.


We investigate possible fraud in data collection and analysis, accounting irregularities, and violations of anti-bribery and corruption guidelines.

Whether it is government agencies, police, emergency management, courts and tribunals, corrections, prisons or probation services, organisations within the justice and security sectors are striving to be lean and dynamic, adopt appropriate technologies, while minimising risk and complying with complex legislative frameworks.
