Maintaining the security of our client data is intrinsically linked to this. In the era of an increased threat of cyber-attacks on any firm, we saw the critical need to add rigour to current processes to demonstrate our commitment to information security to our clients”
said Jamie O’Rourke, Chairman, RSM.
