Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has entered a strategic partnership with Mandiant, a cybersecurity services division within Google Cloud.

BCG and Mandiant will work together to help organizations determine the most pressing cyber risks and identify the best way to mitigate and withstand attacks. The partnership combines Mandiant’s incident response and threat intelligence capabilities with BCG’s expertise working with boards and C-suite leaders.

The partnership will work with clients on three areas:

Pre-incident, helping organizations prepare with simulations, crisis preparedness strategy, and secure design.

During incident, working across organizational silos to minimize impact of an incident and providing co-ordination among stakeholders.

Post-incident, helping strengthen cyber capabilities with a structured post-mortem and remediation/transformation program.

Mandiant was acquired by Google for $5.4 billion in September 2022. The Reston, VA-based cybersecurity firm had over 2,300 employees and $483 million in annual revenue prior to its acquisition.

“BCG and Mandiant share a vision for helping organizations tackle their biggest challenges. Together, we can deliver even more impactful solutions to our shared clients, helping them to build cyber resilience and increase their competitive advantage,” said Jurgen Kutscher, VP of Mandiant Consulting, Google Cloud.

BCG’s cybersecurity consulting practice works with clients to help them link cyber strategy to business strategy, build capabilities, and continually align and improve cyber and risk management.

The Boston-headquartered consultancy has more than 30,000 people across offices in over 50 countries.
