Research announcement: Another Asia Pacific Forrester Wave™ evaluation is coming. This time, I will be evaluating cybersecurity consulting providers in the region. Gather round!

The cybersecurity consulting market has been alive and well in AP since I began my career many years ago. I have worked at — and was a client of — a few consultancies throughout my career. There are many providers in this market, and over the past 20 years, I’ve seen the ebbs and flows of CISOs in our region preferring and utilizing global players, one-person shops, and everything in between. Coupled with cybersecurity transformations in many AP organizations, this makes it challenging for CISOs and enterprises to assess providers — hence this research!

My US colleagues Jeff Pollard and Claire O’Malley are in the final stages of completing their global assessment and will soon pass the baton on to me in AP and my colleague Paul McKay in EMEA! More collaborative, global research by our security services team delivering unparalleled global and local insight to our clients — I continue to be so proud of this.

If you would like to be considered for participation in the Wave evaluation of cybersecurity consulting providers in Asia Pacific, tentatively scheduled for publication in Q4 of this year, please immediately get in contact with me, my senior research associate, Seles Sebastin, or the Forrester sales team so that we can share a screener questionnaire. Also, if you would like to see us include a particular provider in the Wave, get in touch with Seles or myself.
