Grant Thornton has joined a new digital resilience consortium, which will provide global clients procurement options reportedly “over and above” traditional providers through various integrated digital resilience services.
The firm has formed the consortium alongside global law practice Eversheds Sutherland, alternative legal and compliance service provider Konexo and leading cybersecurity provider Trustwave.
Each member will provide advisory services to its global client base, who will be predominately in regulated sectors such as financial services.
Manu Sharma, partner and head of Cyber Security and Resilience at Grant Thornton, said: “Almost every aspect of an organisation’s operations is now digitally enabled and, in this environment, it is vital that businesses understand the need to build effective digital resilience.
“Prioritising both continuous assurance and creating a robust control framework, are critical to both mitigating risk and reducing the chance of a crisis.”
He added: “Ensuring strong digital resilience also provides organisations with a competitive advantage. Fast and efficient processes have become even more critical during the COVID-19 pandemic, as the move to e-commerce has been accelerated and is expected to remain.
“The consortium is uniquely positioned to help organisations maximise on this opportunity and drive digital resilience through a ‘one stop shop’ of expert advice and world-class, core services.”
