Deloitte strengthens eCrime security team with strategic appointment
Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has appointed security expert James Rendell as a Director in its security team. The security team is part of its Enterprise Risk Services practice which consists of 1,000 professionals in the UK who help organisations deal with complex risk and control issues.
Rendell said: “I am looking forward to helping clients protect themselves from eCrime. Companies want to allow their customers to shop and bank online, however their customers always demand the utmost safety.”
Rendell has worked in the industry for 25 years with a focus on systems and infrastructure security, security assurance and assessment, as well as security and fraud management for e-commerce, online systems and applications.
Rendell joins from Arcot Systems where he was EMEA Technical Manager, prior to which he was UK consulting manager for IBM Internet Security Systems. He helped launch Verified by VISA and MasterCard SecureCode, systems to improve security and reduce fraud for online card payments.
Simon Owen, lead partner of Deloitte’s Enterprise Risk Services practice, said: “We are delighted James has joined the team. He has extensive experience of working with the banking industry, internet payment processors, and online merchants in the UK and Europe. He has worked for many years to help them reduce their e-commerce fraud exposure by supporting these secure payment schemes.”
Rendell added: “Deloitte’s clients face the challenge of providing richer and more powerful online services, over more channels (voice enabled, mobile devices etc), in less time than ever before, with increased regulatory scrutiny. This is alongside fraudsters becoming ever more sophisticated. The good news is that the necessary technical tools are available to enable our clients to manage their fraud risks in this complex environment, however the awareness of these is often poor, and their complexity can make it challenging to integrate into their existing fraud management processes.”
