KPMG in Canada has scooped up Egyde, a Quebec City-based cyber security firm.

KPMG chose Egyde for its “technical skills and innovative vision about cyber security,” says Francis Beaudoin, KPMG Canada’s technology risk consulting leader, in a release. Cyber expertise is “increasingly important to help combat the growing cyber risks facing Canadian businesses,” he adds.

As part of the acquisition, which closed on April 5, the cyber security firm will now be called KPMG Egyde. All employees, including CEO Guillaume Clément, will join KPMG and continue to work out of their current Quebec offices.

Through seven cyber partners, KPMG staff provide cyber security, IT risk management and business continuity services.
