Toronto, July 12, 2018 — Deloitte announced today that International Data Corporation (IDC) has named it a global leader in Canadian Security Services in their report entitled, IDC MarketScape: Canadian Security Services 2018 Vendor Assessment.

“In a constantly evolving security environment, this accolade serves as a strong testament to Deloitte’s ongoing commitment to aid our clients in navigating these complexities,” said Nick Galletto, Global and Canadian Cyber Risk Leader at Deloitte. “Our depth and breadth of knowledge advising clients, running their security operations and aligning cyber risk with business risks, including the use of innovation and emerging technologies to deliver superior services will continue to drive business value and growth in Canada.”
