Cyber risk

Drive intelligent protection in the digital age

Deloitte’s world-renowned cyber security, privacy and risk management services can help you deal with pervasive information and technology risks.

Rapidly expanding connectivity, more widespread use of mobile devices and online criminal networks with sophisticated technologies make IT security and cyber-crime critical issues.

Deloitte’s tailored solutions use methods and tools that assist in secure and reliable operations across your organisation.

Security management

Deloitte’s security management professionals will show you how to make a steep change in managing IT security by improving your organisation’s security structure, governance and approach. 

We help organisations identify key risks and effect change to protect sensitive information and systems while remaining in compliance with complex and diverse personal information international laws and regulations. 

Our security transformation experts take time to understand your risk appetite before creating a security improvement program that suits your organisation.

We understand all aspects of IT security including data privacy, payment cards security, strategy and governance, training and awareness, mobile device management and third-party cloud security.

Identity and access management

For most digital processes, there are elements that are sensitive and carry a large monetary value, or both, and managing these processes is critical.

Deloitte can help you manage access to digital services, such as employee access to corporate applications, or customers using online services in government, banking or retail.

We can also help you manage risks inherent to digital disruption. For example, we can work with you to establish digital trust (authentication and authorization) to reduce risks in digital transactions, and confirm or revoke access to your service after it has been enabled.

Cyber security

The growing list of Australian organisations suffering IT security breaches highlights how vulnerable many organisations are to such threats.

The loss of sensitive data or personal information, and denial of services are often the result of sophisticated cyber attacks by well resourced criminals.

Without the right security strategy, these breaches can lead to financial loss, damage to reputation, operational downtime and a host of regulatory compliance and governance issues. Recent cases show that repercussions can extend all the way to the board.

Our global experience enables us to help you build security capabilities that are crucial in defending against the impacts of a cyber attack by anticipating and preventing threats before they happen.

Cyber threat intelligence

For many organisations, gathering and analysing the many internal and external threat sources to get relevant, specific and actionable information is like finding a needle in a haystack: time-consuming, resource-intensive and inefficient.

Deloitte’s Cyber Intelligence Centre has been developed to help you make more intelligent decisions. Working alongside organisations to contextualise the threat to their business, we focus their attention on the right place at the right time to spot the telltale signs of an attack before it turns into a crisis.

Cyber incident response

Cyber threats are constantly evolving, increasing in volume, intensity and complexity. Eventually, an attack will get through the defences and cause an impact.

When an incident occurs, the response must be fast, thorough and decisive. Mounting an effective and speedy response is critical and puts intense pressure on an organisation, at just the moment when investors, customers and regulators will be giving it their greatest attention.

Immediate action is needed to quickly establish the nature and severity of the cyber incident, identify its impact and avert subsequent attacks. The ability to take decisive action enables an organisation to take back control of the situation as a solution is identified.

Once the immediate impact is contained, there will be further questions – how did this occur? What went wrong? How do we ensure it doesn’t happen again? Whose fault was this? Forensic post-incident evidence gathering, analysis and reporting are fundamental elements of a coherent response.

Cyber Check - vulnerability management made easy

Attackers are always searching for new vulnerabilities. To reduce your exposure you must discover your weaknesses before they do.

To protect your critical assets you need to assess and verify your vulnerability exposure, identify which threats are relevant to your organisation and take pragmatic action to enhance your security.

As part of Deloitte’s Cyber Intelligence Centre, our vulnerability management services benefit from real-time updates on the latest threats to provide you with the most up-to-date assessments.

Cyber Intelligence Centre

If you are online you are a target, but with the relevant business intelligence you can prepare to address threats as they arise and respond to them effectively. This is why we created the Cyber Intelligence Centre.

Deloitte’s Cyber Intelligence Centre integrates state-of-the-art technology with industry insight to provide round-the-clock business-focused operational security.

With 24x7 coverage, we monitor and assess the threats specific to your organisation, using our globally connected network of cyber intelligence centres, enabling you to swiftly and effectively mitigate risk and strengthen your cyber resilience.
