Deloitte’s Channel Islands advisory expertise continues to grow in strength and depth with the appointment of cyber expert Caroline Honeycombe as Manager in the Risk Advisory team.
Miss Honeycombe has over 10 years’ experience working for the UK Government within the intelligence community on national security and cyber investigations, both within the UK and UK assets worldwide.
Miss Honeycombe held a number of analytical and investigative cyber roles during her time with the UK Government and has developed a particular interest in cyber risk management, cyber strategy, and cyber incident response to help organisations build good practice in these areas.
She has planned, led and delivered numerous tactical incident responses and longer-term complex strategic investigations. In her time working in government, Miss Honeycombe was also instrumental in the implementation of new solutions and pioneered new capabilities in forensic data analysis and computer and digital forensics.
Miss Honeycombe has developed an extensive understanding of the evolving technology landscape and the associated cyber threats that technology faces. She is able to advise organisations on the complex nature of associated threats exposed by the internet, the ever-increasing level and type of cyber threat and the associated risks faced by organisations.
Miss Honeycombe has also worked for the Jersey Financial Services Commission where she managed a number of entities for regulatory supervision within the Investment Business and Trust Company Business team.
Miss Honeycombe’s role with Deloitte will see her focus on the firm’s world-leading cyber risk portfolio which delivers end-to-end cybersecurity services. She will help drive and deliver best practice for Deloitte’s clients through cyber assessments and strategy and transformation projects, and will lead the local delivery of the firm’s offering in cyber risk management, cyber training education and awareness, incident response and cyber threat intelligence.
