Bending diversity into mission: Accenture cybersecurity’s evolution into ‘the new’

With views of the Washington Monument, the Pentagon and Washington National Cathedral, Accenture’s (NYSE: ACN) recently opened Cyber Fusion Center (CFC) in Rosslyn, Va., reflects its neighbors’ sense of mission and culture. With distinct but collaborative teams, the CFC provides Accenture three opportunities. First, the center allows Accenture to work collaboratively with clients on business issues and risks tied to cybersecurity. Second, the CFC brings together diverse talent, allows for the cross-pollination of skills and expertise, and emboldens an esprit de corps among the in-house cyber talent. Finally, the CFC facilitates innovation the Accenture way: intentional, with a three-year outlook, and always moving toward scale.
