KPMG has announced the integration of a leading technological firm in the cyber intelligence and digital surveillance market, ZINK Security. As part of this initiative, and in line with the firm’s global cybersecurity growth strategy, Juan Antonio Calles and his team of consultants have joined KPMG.
“The incorporation of ZINK Security’s proprietary technology, coupled with its extensive expertise, will enable us to play a key role in Cyber intelligence services and solutions,” says Marc Martínez, Information Security and Business Continuity partner at KPMG in Spain.
Specifically, this integration will allow KPMG to investigate and monitor events, information leaks, relationships between people, groups, entities etc. through information available on social networks, forums, blogs, news sites and deep web, as well as other remotely accessible repositories, to assist companies in monitoring, analysing and managing the mass of information generated daily.
In the past eight months, KPMG has invested substantially internationally in strengthening its cyber capabilities. This includes acquisitions of First Point Global, a leading identity and Access management (IAM) consultancy operating in Australia; Qubera, also an IAM operating in the USA, UK and India; P3 Consulting, a Frankfurt-based security boutique consultancy; and most recently Finnish cyber security business, Trusteq Oy – which also specialises in IAM services and security transformation.
