Deloitte named a leader in Global Risk Management Consulting services by Gartner

Published: 5 January 2015 

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (Deloitte Global) is pleased to announce that Deloitte has been named a “leader” in Global Risk Management Consulting services by Gartner in its recently released report entitled, Magic Quadrant for Global Risk Management Consulting Services.

Gartner defines risk management as “the strategic discipline of assessing, prioritizing, monitoring and controlling the impact of uncertainty on objectives.” The Gartner report evaluated seven global firms and networks on three dimensions of risk management — framework, metrics, and systems. Within the quadrant graphic included in the report, Deloitte member firms’ risk management consulting services were positioned highest on the “ability to execute” axis and furthest on the “completeness of vision” axis.

“Of the industry recognition Deloitte has earned over the years, this placement from Gartner ranks among the top,” said Adel Melek, Managing Director, Enterprise Risk Services, Deloitte Global. “We believe Deloitte’s unwavering commitment to clients and the significant investments we have made in our people and technologies are all reflected in this assessment.”

“Deloitte considers this positioning as a ‘Leader’ as a reflection of its member firms’ commitment to helping clients integrate risk management into the business,” said Henry Ristuccia, Global Leader, Governance, Regulatory & Risk Strategies, Deloitte Global. “Deloitte’s Risk Transformation framework is a prime example, addressing strategic and operational risks as well as risks related to governance, culture, technology and infrastructure, helping organizations regardless of industry and geography get ahead of risk.”

“In China, Deloitte is also supporting many local companies to develop the risk management framework along with their growing maturity and expansion into the global market.

We strongly believe that companies that are most effective and efficient in managing risks will, in the long run, outperform those that are less so,” said Eddie Chiu, National Managing Partner, Enterprise Risk Services, Deloitte China.

Cyber Risk Services and Crisis Management round out broad portfolio

Deloitte considers cyber risk services to rank among its most important offerings in the marketplace.

“The terms ‘cyber’ and ‘risk’ appear together with increasing frequency in the news,” said Ted DeZabala, Global Leader, Cyber Risk Services, Deloitte Global. “We believe the inclusion of cyber services in this report reinforces the point that cyber has rapidly become an essential component of comprehensive risk management programs, as companies strive to become secure, vigilant, and resilient.”

Peter Koo, Deloitte China's National Leader of Security Consulting echoed that, “Our 2020 strategy and foresight has brought us one step ahead and enabled us to provide more advanced solutions than other consulting firms in Corporate and IT governance. Indeed, we have been propagating how to have Corporate Governance, Risk and Internal Control automated with system solutions that embrace Key Risk Indicators over different environments; in addition, we also have a higher level of sophistication in risk modelling and risk data analytics, and we are extremely strong in the Cyber Security that tackles trendy technology, such as, Cloud, Big Data, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Virtualization, e-Commerce and m-Commerce etc. As a result, our superb capabilities are highly recognized by Gartner and have boosted our ranking against our competition.”

Crisis management

“Member firm professionals always listen to clients and evolve solutions to meet their clients’ needs,” said Jeremy Smith, Global Leader, Crisis Management services, Deloitte Global. “To that end, we’ve added new services within crisis management that integrate Deloitte’s existing capabilities—forensic, restructuring, financial crime, cyber, and resilience services—to provide an end-end crisis management solution.”
