Our Industries

Risk & Assurance

Wilton & Bain have been delivering strategic talent resourcing programmes in the Enterprise Risk, Regulatory Advisory and Technology Risk Consulting, across EMEA, the Americas and APAC, since our inception.  As the market has evolved we have developed a significant specialism on emerging topics such as Cyber Security and Financial Crime, alongside completing various mandates within functional areas such as GRC, Programme Risk Management, 3rd Party & Contract Risk and Internal Audit.   We have also worked across the CRO, CIO and CISO agenda in/across a diverse range of industries.

With strong ties to Silicon Valley through our office in San Francisco, we are increasingly working in partnership with market disruptors and innovators in areas such as Blockchain and Risk Analytics, alongside supporting the changing role of technology within Audit.  We help our clients to reconcile the pace and diversity of the Regulatory landscape and emerging Data Privacy laws, supporting complex Governance, Compliance and Reporting requirements in both Private and Public sectors.
