FTI Consulting Expands Cybersecurity Practice into Hong Kong with Appointment of Eva Kwok
Washington, D.C., June 26, 2023 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced the appointment of Eva Kwok as a Senior Managing Director within the firm’s Cybersecurity practice.
Ms. Kwok, who is based in Hong Kong, joins with more than 23 years of experience in the information systems industry. In her role at FTI Consulting, Ms. Kwok will focus on forensic analysis, complex investigations and risk management, while also helping clients respond to and recover from cybersecurity incidents.
Ms. Kwok will also bring value to clients in cybersecurity readiness to help bolster their protections ahead of incidents. Most recently, Ms. Kwok served as the Cyber Lead of Deloitte China – Hong Kong, where she focused on cyber strategy, technology risk, data governance and assessment projects for large organizations.
“Cybersecurity is truly a global challenge, and organizations around the world are forced to grapple with complex issues daily,” said Anthony J. Ferrante, Global Leader of FTI Consulting’s Cybersecurity practice. “The impressive expertise that Eva brings to our global team will help clients in Hong Kong who are struggling to keep pace with an evolving threat landscape. Her ability to develop creative approaches to challenging issues is vital, especially when building cybersecurity risk and advisory strategies, and during incident response and investigations where traditional techniques fall short.”
Commenting on her appointment, Ms. Kwok said, “Between digitalization efforts, smart city initiatives, pending cybersecurity law and regulations in Hong Kong and other jurisdictions globally, and increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, unprepared organizations face significant implications. Leveraging sector-specific, real-world experience, FTI Consulting’s Cybersecurity practice is ideally suited to advise clients on their cyber risk management challenges, respond during a crisis, and deal with the complexities that often follow an incident.”
The appointment of Ms. Kwok continues the expansion of the firm’s capabilities in the Asia Pacific region this year, following the appointment of Wouter Veugelen, who joined the Cybersecurity practice as a Senior Managing Director and Australia Leader in January.
