Accenture Labs: Holistic approach to cyber security operations

Cyber-attacks grow more complex and relentless every day. Through our facility in Arlington, Virginia, we provide key insights to improve security. 


Attacks on IT systems are widening across more devices, more systems and more people. This puts security organizations under escalating pressure from chief executives and corporate boards seeking assurance that data risks are adequately mitigated.

Chief information officers and their security teams are therefore looking for greater insight into attack profiles, more creative and agile responses and better understanding of the latest advances in security technology.

Accenture Labs has created a dedicated cyber-security lab in Arlington, Virginia, to provide clients with a trusted source of fresh ideas and independent insights about what security responses make most sense.

Accenture Labs provides the latest security insights, drawing on a diverse team of technologists, business leaders and 2,000 security consultants worldwide.

Managed Security Operations

Keeping pace with best practices and technology in the security industry is a daunting task.

Building and managing a security infrastructure is costly in terms of both resources and time, as it requires both complex and rapidly outdated technology infrastructure and applications and significant management resources.

We can help reduce both the cost and complexity associated with security solutions by delivering effective managed operations in partnership with top specialty providers—freeing up resources so you can focus on your core business.

Attracting and retaining experienced security professionals is also increasingly difficult.

Our managed security operations team is made up of adept professionals with deep knowledge and experience, combined with key alliances with best-in-class vendors.

This allows us to manage risk, reduce cost and reduce the complexity of an effective security operation for your organization.
