FTI Consulting boosts cybersecurity and data privacy communications, appoints new Director

FTI Consulting has announced the appointment of Eli Serota as a Director in the Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Communications practice within the Strategic Communications segment in Singapore.

With an aim to strengthen the firm's cybersecurity crisis comms offerings in Asia, Eli will focus on partnering with its regional and global teams to support the increased demand for cybersecurity and data privacy communications advisory services. These services will place emphasis on the communication elements of cybersecurity preparedness and incident response, particularly those involving sensitive data such as personal identifiable information, protected health information and intellectual property.

Eli has advised organisations on their communications challenges in the face of double and triple extortion ransomware, phishing campaigns, human-engineered breaches and credential stuffing. He has also guided companies through incident response and post-incident reputation rebuild.

“Eli is well known within FTI Consulting, having previously been based in the firm’s Strategic Communications team in the US,” said Jane Morgan, Senior Managing Director in the Strategic Communications segment. "His experience spans multiple industries, and as we see increasing activity in cyber-related crises here in Asia Pacific, it was the right moment in time for him to join the team in Singapore, so we can accelerate our cybersecurity and data privacy communications offerings.”

Eva Kwok, Head of Cybersecurity, Hong Kong, added, “Cybersecurity presents one of the most critical technological challenges of our time, coupled with the complex imperative of effective communications to mitigate reputational risks. With the addition of Eli to the growing team in Asia, we are uniquely positioned to support clients in navigating today’s complex threat landscape.”

Eli commented on his appointment, “I’m very excited to join my strategic communications colleagues in Singapore and the rest of FTI Consulting’s Asia offices. While cybersecurity is a growing issue across the globe, Asia continues to see particularly steep growth in cybersecurity incidents. I look forward to working with clients across the region who are looking to mitigate their communications challenges.”
