London, UK – The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) welcomes Deloitte to its partner ranks. In November, Sir Robert Wainwright, Senior Partner for Deloitte’s Cyber practice in North West Europe, was appointed to the GCA board of directors. Prior to his role with Deloitte, Wainwright served as Executive Director of Europol, the EU’s law enforcement agency which coordinates global operations against cyber, criminal and terrorist networks.

“The Global Cyber Alliance provides a valuable service in bringing like-mind organisations and communities together to address cyber security with solutions that are measurable and reduce risk,” said Wainwright. “Cybersecurity is not just the domain of enterprise organisations and governments. Cyber-crime is borderless and the threats affect all of us, from individuals, small business, large enterprises and governments. Deloitte is proud to be a partner with GCA and support its mission to eradicate cyber risk by making good cyber security more accessible to all.”

“Deloitte’s commitment to and expertise in cyber security is a welcome addition to the GCA partner roster. We look forward to working with Deloitte and the addition of Mr. Wainwright to the GCA board of directors,” said Philip Reitinger, GCA President and CEO.
