Deloitte strengthens Asia Pacific Cyber capabilities with acquisition of cyber advisory firm SecurePath Sdn Bhd
KUALA LUMPUR, 14 January 2020 - Professional services firm Deloitte announced today that the founder and staff of a boutique cyber advisory firm, SecurePath Sdn Bhd, have joined the firm’s Risk Advisory practice in Malaysia.
Thio Tse Gan, Deloitte South East Asia Cyber Leader said: “SecurePath’s capability will scale up and accelerate Deloitte’s cyber risk services, particularly enhancing our ability to offer clients expertise in data loss prevention, cyber threat defence and other cyber related services.”
“Collaborating in the areas of cyber and data security, data loss prevention, operational intelligence, governance and risk compliance, the SecurePath team will bring its deep domain expertise to help our clients keep pace with the constantly evolving cyber risk landscape. They will enhance and complement our existing investments in the design, build and running of bespoke cyber risk services for clients.”
SecurePath is recognised as a leading and innovative partner for Symantec, Veritas, NetIQ and Splunk in the Southeast Asia region and has a successful track record of delivering strategic and complex projects for clients. These leading enterprise solutions are widely used by large enterprises in cyber security surveillance and threat intelligence, as well as providing strong protection capabilities over their most prized data assets.
Deloitte’s Cyber leader for Asia Pacific, James Nunn-Price, said: “Today, businesses are investing in projects and programmes that help them to monitor and stay alert to key risk events in real time – such as fraud, cyber security, compliance and financial crime. SecurePath helps their clients build and implement solutions so that they can get the insight needed to stay ahead of, and block, the threats. This acquisition further strengthens our capabilities in managing cyber everywhere so society can go anywhere.”
Incoming Deloitte partner and Managing Director of SecurePath, KC Chung, said joining Deloitte would help his team scale and achieve its goal of becoming the undisputed leader of Cyber services in the region: “We have been working very closely with Symantec, Veritas and NetIQ for many years, and have established ourselves as the premier go-to partner for customers who desire high quality services in extracting the maximum value from their investments in these technologies. Our team has successfully and repeatedly proven to excel in providing turnkey project delivery services, from planning & design, to implementation, testing, training and support. Since 2011, we have won numerous Service Excellence Partner awards as a leader in delivering core and complex data loss prevention and other cyber-security projects. Joining Deloitte will give us unparalleled synergy in the market, by combining our team’s credentials with Deloitte’s strong branding and presence, both locally and regionally.”
This transaction builds on Deloitte’s previous Global and Asia Pacific investments in the risk and cyber space, including the teams from Practical Smarts, Connected Analytics, CBIG Consulting, Qubit Consulting and Converging Data Australia.
