Deloitte Romania strengthens its cybersecurity team by appointing Andrea Multari, an experienced professional in cyber across multiple domains and markets, as partner and leader of the Central Europe specialized practice, effective as of March 1, 2023. In his new role, Andrea will be working with all Deloitte member firms in the region, including Romania, to help clients build and reinforce their cyber capabilities.
With more than 25 years of experience in cybersecurity, Andrea Multari has worked with CISOs (chief information security officers) and CTOs (chief technology officers) in various industries and organizations across the globe, leading complex IT and cybersecurity transformation projects. His expertise covers areas such as information risk, business continuity, identity and access management, security strategy, security architecture and operations, data protection and privacy. Prior to joining Deloitte, he was Accenture Romania’s Country Leader, after which he built and developed the cyber practice in the Middle East.
“I am honored to welcome a professional of Andrea’s caliber and I am confident his outstanding knowledge and understanding of cybersecurity will make a real impact on our clients and teams. He will contribute to consolidating our local specialized practice and to strengthening its connections with the other teams in Central Europe in order to deliver best-in-class regional projects. Companies of all dimensions and in all the fields need more than ever strong cybersecurity strategies, as the number and the complexity of attacks have intensified,” stated Andrei Ionescu, Partner-in-Charge, Consulting and Risk Advisory, Deloitte Romania, and local leader of the cybersecurity practice.
Deloitte Romania’s cybersecurity team is specialized in strategy, including cyber crisis exercising and deep dive assessments, defense, including identity and access management services, security operations, proactive and reactive incident management processes and technologies, and attack, revolving around penetration testing, such as red-team testing (TIBER-EU).
The team is an active player during top cyber exercises organized in Romania. In the last years, Deloitte Romania has been one of the very few private organizations selected to participate, alongside the Ministry of National Defense, in the annual exercises organized by NATO. In 2022, Deloitte’s cyber team participated in one of the largest cybersecurity exercises organized in Romania by the National CYBERINT Center within the Romanian Intelligence Service. In addition, the local cybersecurity experts, who own tens of specialized certifications, provide internationally recognized trainings through Deloitte Academy, the professional training unit of Deloitte Romania. Deloitte is an official Authorized Training Center (ATC) in Romania for the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants, also known as EC-Council.
At a global level, for the eleventh year in a row, Gartner ranked Deloitte the leader in security consulting services by market share.
