Q&A with FTI Consulting’s Anthony Ferrante

The past two years have seen record volumes of deals, pushing M&A and transaction advisory practices to the forefront of many consulting providers’ growth strategies. So far, 2018 is shaping up to be a very good year. However, many consulting firms have begun to incorporate cyber security into their TAS service portfolio. ALM Intelligence’s finance & operations consulting research team spoke with FTI Consulting’s Anthony J. Ferrante, a Senior Managing Director and the Global Head of Cybersecurity for FTI, about cyber security and the transaction advisory process. 

ALM Intelligence: How should com-panies approach cyber security needs?

Ferrante: Cybersecurity needs to be part of every company’s strategic growth strategy. As your organization becomes larger and more well-known among clients and industry peers, it also becomes a more attractive target for malicious cyber actors. Investing in cybersecurity means investing in the safety of your organization’s most critical assets—the very assets that may need to be leveraged to propel a company’s growth strategy in the near to long-term future. Strengthening cybersecurity policies and procedures gives corporate leaders the confidence they need in their organization and assures investors that their interest in a company is protected.
