Our Industries

Cyber Security

Wilton & Bain have been deeply connected to the Information & Cyber Security domain for the last fifteen years. As we’ve witnessed significant convergence across different risk disciplines and a move toward an integrated approach to Cyber Security, we have supported clients with complex and ambitious talent programmes for Boards, CRO, CISO and a broad ecosystem of professional and technology services clients such as the Big 4 Advisory firms, Strategy firms, Security Vendors and Solution companies, alongside more disruptive VC-backed new entrants.

We have helped our clients to reconcile the pace and diversity of the threat landscape, while also responding to increasing Regulatory pressures and emerging Data Privacy laws. More recently our work has focused on supporting clients with the competitive and increasingly global nature of the market for these skillsets. Our single global P&L and collaborative team approach has allowed us to provide a unique group of experts and access to talent for repatriation, diversity and key leadership programmes.
