Manu Sharma Partner, Head of Cyber Security and Resilience London +44 (0)20 7865 2406

Having worked in Professional services for over 15 years, I have seen the risk management culture develop immensely across all sectors and have seen organisations improve governance, enhance risk management framework and culture and focus on growing the business across the globe.

I am the leader for Cyber security, resilience and payments. This involves providing assurance and advisory services to organisations to identify the risks and assisting them in developing and implementing solutions.  The team consist of specialists who have worked in industry for a number of years and have gained experience through working in information security. 

I also manage the client relationships for some of our key clients in the financial services and work with their Internal audit, risk management, IT assurance and advisory and payment services.  This group of more than 300 specialists supports clients in the financial services, large corporate, central government and not-for-profit sectors.

I closely work with Government on their Cyber security initiative to raise awareness of Cyber security within FTSE 350 companies. I also work with ICAEW, BBA, CISI and IIA and this gives us the opportunity to influence the development of the financial services sector in the UK, and also to create thought leadership that supports the challenges facing our clients and markets.
