KPMG cited as leader for Information Security consulting services by independent research firm 


KPMG’s Information Security Consulting Services capability has been named a “Leader” in the first-quarter 2013 Forrester Wave™ Information Security Consulting Services report, which evaluated 10 firms.  The companies categorized as Leaders in Forrester’s 42-criteria evaluation “demonstrated tenacious client focus, deep technical expertise, a wide breadth of services and substantial global reach.”


KPMG was singled out in the report for the firm’s “personality and a strong focus on customer advancement.”  It also cited “KPMG’s razor-sharp focus on delivering both competitive advantage and value to customers, and an appetite to take on the toughest consultancy tasks (often taken over from competitors).”  The report went on to say that the firm “continues to offer best-in-class services for strategy, design, and assessment of information risk governance as well as threat and vulnerability management.”


Malcolm Marshall, KPMG’s UK and Global Leader for Information Protection, commented:


“In a highly competitive marketplace, it is hugely gratifying to be recognised for the effort and dedication of our teams. in the UK we have a history of tackling the most complex initiatives in large complex multi-national organisations. In the past two years we've more than doubled the size of our team and now provide businesses of all sizes with deep levels of security expertise, supporting organisations from Aberdeen to Penzance."


“By continuing to offer our clients comprehensive, best-in-class services, we remain at the forefront of the information security industry. However, we cannot rest on our laurels and will continue to invest to make sure that KPMG clients get the very best support in the market.”
