The client launched a global, multiyear transformation initiative, starting first with business transformation as its overarching foundation, supported by digital technology solutions, to enable and accelerate efforts across people and processes. The overall initiative had several workstreams, and we helped protect the business by implementing risk and cybersecurity solutions as part of the transformation effort.
Across all countries, we helped the client:
- Update and enhance its global cybersecurity program
- Develop the cybersecurity strategy and design and implement technical cybersecurity controls as part of the implementation of four new global technology platforms
- Develop a global disaster recovery program
- Improve data privacy policies and procedures
We collaborated with the client on a thorough analysis of its core business areas, technologies, data, organizational change initiatives, risk and cybersecurity programs. We helped the client achieve the full return-on-investment it sought and make immediate and long-term changes for a sustainable impact on the business.
Specifically, we helped the client achieve the following results:
- Identified and remediated key cyber, resilience, and data privacy risks across their business and technology transformation
- Pinpointed process and control gaps in accordance with industry recognized compliance frameworks focused on security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy of data.

This supported a shift in culture and increased operational rigor related to following processes and accountability for internal controls.
