Appointments Build on Recent Senior Hires and Continue Global Growth for the Cybersecurity Practice
LONDON, July 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of seven professionals in the Cybersecurity practice in London and Seoul, South Korea, continuing the firm’s investment in talent globally to help clients address complex cyber challenges.
The appointments include Senior Managing Director Patrick MacGloin, Managing Director Paul Reilly, Senior Director David Harvey, Directors Stephen Deutsch and Oliver Price, and Senior Consultants Jinsuk Oh and Sam Brown. Their arrivals follow the addition of Joshua Burch as a Senior Managing Director and Head of Cybersecurity for Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa and Kyung Kim as a Senior Managing Director and Head of Cybersecurity for Asia Pacific in late 2019.
FTI Consulting’s investment in its global Cybersecurity practice comes as cybersecurity remains a top concern for most organizations. According to the FTI Consulting Resilience Barometer 2020, less than half of all executives surveyed are managing cyber-attacks proactively, and only 10 percent believe they have no cybersecurity gaps at all, despite cyber-attacks being identified as having the most negative impact on revenue.
“Our global landscape has shifted rapidly in recent months, but one constant is the threat posed by cybersecurity risks. The cyber risk landscape is dynamic and fluid and requires top talent to stay ahead of the threats,” said Anthony J. Ferrante, Global Head of Cybersecurity at FTI Consulting. “This group of talented professionals further enhances our ability to help clients protect their assets and quickly respond to incidents that could threaten their freedom to operate.”

Mr MacGloin has been on the advisory boards of various international professional bodies and conferences, including the RSA Cybersecurity Conference and the Chartered Institute of Information Security. His work for a Dubai government entity received the 2016 Global Cyber Risk Strategy Award from the Institute of Risk Management.
