Protiviti in addition was recognised as the most innovative Data Security Company. In the article below, the global consultancy reflects on its successful scoop and the edge it offers to clients.
Protiviti is incredibly honoured to be named Best Global Business Consultants 2015 for two years running and most innovative Data Security Company in 2015. Our primary focus is helping global clients manage their business risks more effectively. Since Cyber / Data Security is one of those key business risks that has moved up the agenda to the board level, we are glad to be recognised as innovators in this important space. Data Security is after all a business problem and not a technical one and affects our clients and society as a whole as we become more dependent on technology and embed it into everyday life. Our business still grows very much through referrals from existing clients. We believe that part of this achievement arises from the feedback on our work within the marketplace.
