About the Division

The value that Deloitte Risk Advisory Africa creates for organisations is synonymous with operational excellence.

We help organisations address pressing strategic information and technology risks, such as cyber security, data leakage, identity and access management, data security breaches, operational resilience and system outages, privacy and application integrity. We provide industry-tailored solutions, using demonstrated methodologies and tools in an effective manner, with the goal of enabling secure, vigilant and resilient operations across the enterprise.
