Why Read This
In Forrester's 75-criteria evaluation of information security and risk consulting service providers, we found that Deloitte led the pack because of its maniacal customer focus and deep technical expertise. PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Ernst & Young, and Accenture are market leaders due to their security expertise, breadth of services, and global reach. KPMG provides excellent strategic work and boasts great client feedback. Verizon Business has been quickly catching up to the Leaders due to its focused strategy around security services and flawless execution. Wipro now offers a viable offshore alternative, while HP and IBM have renewed their focus on security consulting services by integrating security competencies from different parts of their business into a coherent unit. BT Global Services continues to provide pragmatic risk-focused consulting services across the globe, and AT&T's recent acquisition of VeriSign's security consulting practice will make it a formidable competitor in this space. Protiviti may not have the same breadth of services, but it delivers excellent customer-focused risk- and compliance-driven services.
