10/14/2021 | 05:11am EST

James Nunn-Price Joins Accenture to Lead Its Security Practice in Growth Markets

Cybersecurity expert brings extensive experience to Accenture Security

SYDNEY - Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has hired James Nunn-Price as a senior managing director to lead its Growth Markets Security business - which spans cyber defense, applied cybersecurity solutions and managed security services - across Africa, Australia & New Zealand, Greater China, India, Japan, Latin America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. He will join a global practice of more than 8,000 cybersecurity professionals and report to Kelly Bissell, Accenture's global lead for Security.

Nunn-Price has more than 20 years of experience in cybersecurity, including in cyber incident response, managed security services and cyber transformation programs. He joins Accenture from Deloitte, where he was a partner and most recently led the company's cyber and strategic risk practice across the Asia-Pacific region.

"James is an innovative leader in business and cybersecurity, and we're thrilled to welcome him to our Security leadership team," Bissell said. "His deep technical and local cultural knowledge will make him an extremely valuable asset in our commitment to helping clients achieve cyber resilience and supporting our local team members to deliver market-leading results in the region."

James Nunn-Price

Gianfranco Casati, Accenture's chief executive officer - Growth Markets, said, "We are fortunate to have a talented cybersecurity professional like James join us on our growth journey. A luminary in the industry, James has deep technical knowledge and local experience in what our clients need to drive growth in the market and unlock new opportunities, with cybersecurity at the forefront."

As the digital landscape grows, the client demand for cybersecurity services is on the rise. Accenture Security was reported as a $4.4 billion business growing 29% in fiscal 2021, according to the company's latest financial earnings announcement.

Nunn-Price said, "I have spent my career helping businesses react to incidents and better prepare for the challenges presented by the evolving threat landscape by being more resilient. Although cyber threats have no borders, businesses need us to deliver localized, tailored support that fits their market needs. Accenture has a strong global market presence in the cybersecurity services industry, as well as adjacent tech disruptors, such as cloud, digital and IoT. I am pleased to join and lead this strategic priority for Growth Markets where I will help clients build more resilient and secure environments during their innovation journeys."

Nunn-Price holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Management Science from the University of Kent, along with several certifications in security and cloud technology. He is based in Sydney, Australia.
