Deloitte named a leader in Global Risk Management Consulting services by Gartner
28 October 2014 – 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.
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 Fadi Sidani, partner in charge of Enterprise Risk Services in Deloitte Middle East. “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.”
Gartner defines risk management as “the strategic discipline of assessing, prioritizing, monitoring and controlling the impact of uncertainty on objectives.”
“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 Tariq Ajmal, partner in charge of Information & Technology Risk Services at Deloitte Middle East. “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.”
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 Fadi Mutlak, partner in charge of Cyber Risk Services at Deloitte Middle East. “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.”
Another new service that gained mention in the report was 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.”
