KPMG has made three senior hires to its UK Cyber Security team as it bids to expand its client offering. 

James Todd, Graham Thomas and Catherine Collins have all joined the firm. Todd was previously chief technology officer at BT Security and recently joined KPMG as director of financial services cyber and SecOps lead. He will be “leading KPMG’s security operations capability development and service provision with a specific focus on financial services”. 

Todd said: “It’s a privilege to be working at KPMG and I’m looking forward to providing the firm’s clients with solutions that can be delivered through automation and as managed services, which is a key part of helping them to strengthen their defences.”

Thomas has been appointed as privacy director in the cyber consulting team and will be “responsible for the Data Privacy for Financial Services and lead the Privacy capability across the UK”.

Prior to moving to the firm, he was global lead for data privacy and responsibility for Cognizant, where he founded its privacy practice. 

Thomas said: “It is exciting to join the firm as the market shifts and having previously built a successful global data privacy practice I await the opportunity to use that knowledge to establish a market leading data privacy practice in the UK for KPMG.”

Collins has also been hired as director of financial services cyber with her key responsibilities being “business development, relationship management and project management”. 

She previously worked at Ankura Consulting Group as a senior director where she looked after business development and client relationship management for its Cyber and Privacy practice globally.

Collins added: “Cyber security is an increasing issue for businesses, and many are looking for the guidance, tools and reassurance to properly protect their organisation. I am thrilled to be able to join KPMG to help deliver great work for our clients and build trusted relationships.”
