About FTI Cybersecurity EMEA
We help clients solve complex cyber security challenges. Our clients include some of the world’s biggest brands, who we advise about some of their most sensitive cyber challenges. Discretion and confidentiality are central to how FTI operates.
Our Team Leadership has national security heritage at its core; discretion and judgement are key values for our teams.
Our work is varied, often for clients in distress. Our clients value our responsiveness, agility and expert-driven impact. We look for technical expertise and aptitude, and the personal skills to fit these scenarios.
We operate as one global cybersecurity P&L. Collaboration, both within our team and with other parts of the business (such are Strategic Communications, Technology and Data Science), are central to how we operate. Our engagements typically draw on expertise from across our business and geographies.
After a period of extensive growth, FTI is looking to build out its EMEA cybersecurity practice. We have a phased three-year plan to attract and develop the right talent to be part of this journey. We are the start of this journey, and we are looking for individuals comfortable within a “start-up” environment, within the security of an established corporate setting.
We value talent. We look for aptitude. [Our alumni include noble prize winners.] We recognise the need to attract, retain and develop talent. We value true diversity of opinion and background. We understand the importance of working environments. We believe in providing our people continuous professional development to maintain our expert brand.
