Professional services firm Deloitte has boosted its cyber analytics team with the founder and staff of boutique risk consulting business, Converging Data Australia, joining the firm.

Deloitte announced on Thursday that the Converging Data team had joined its Risk Advisory practice.

Incoming Deloitte Risk Advisory partner and managing director of Converging Data, Stuart Hirst, said joining Deloitte would help his team scale and achieve its goal of becoming the “undisputed leader of Splunk services in Australia”.

“We have worked with Splunk since the day we started. It’s a very powerful tool for capturing and analysing the vast pools of data that large organisations have to deal with.

“We developed our DataPaaS solution to help clients rapidly scale and optimise Splunk tools and are looking forward to combining it with Deloitte’s global team of more than 300 Splunk professionals to help more Australian businesses benefit from the insights and benefits Splunk software can bring.”

Deloitte’s managing partner for Risk Advisory, Dennis Krallis, said: “Converging Data’s capability will scale up and accelerate Deloitte’s cyber analytics services, particularly enhancing our ability to offer clients expertise in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Security Orchestration and Response.

“Working in the areas of security, operational intelligence, and data analytics, as well as digital and IoT innovation, the Converging Data team will bring its deep domain expertise to help our clients keep pace with the continually evolving technology risk landscape.

“They will enhance and complement our existing investments in the design, build and running of bespoke Cyber Security Intelligence Operations Centres for clients.”

The deal with Converging Data builds on Deloitte’s previous investments in the risk and data analytics space, including the teams from Connected Analytics, CBIG Consulting and Qubit Consulting.
