Control Risks Strengthens Its Technology And Information Security Services With Two Key Hires

Control Risks is expanding its technology and information security offerings with the addition of two seasoned experts. Kate Yamashita joins as Managing Director for Cyber Security, and Rith Kem joins the company as Managing Director for Technology.

“We are seeing a growing number of companies looking for ways to use corporate data to drive strategic insights,” says Jim Brooks, CEO of Control Risks in the Americas. “But the same systems that capture and store that data also pose new risks. Cyber security is now consistently a board-level concern for our clients. Kate and Rith add to Control Risks’ expertise for these critical issues.”

Ms. Yamashita has more than 15 years of experience in security and specializes in cyber intelligence and information security strategy. She comes to Control Risks from CrowdStrike, where she oversaw a range of services including incident response and remediation, forensic and intelligence investigations, and threat and maturity assessments. The addition of Ms. Yamashita highlights the growth of Control Risks’ cyber security service offerings, which include strategic cyber threat intelligence, pre-incident assessment and prevention, and postincident response and remediation. Ms. Yamashita will oversee these services in the Americas region.

Mr. Kem has more than a dozen years of experience in applying technology solutions, helping companies to manage their own technology infrastructures and develop information governance strategies. He comes to Control Risks from FTI Consulting, where his focus included e-discovery, litigation support and data analytics. Mr. Kem’s arrival is the latest indication of Control Risks’ expanding technology services. These services now include e-discovery and litigation support, technology-assisted investigations and forensics, and advanced data analytics that offer strategic insights across complicated and disparate data sets.

“New technologies continue to create new and previously unforeseen risks for businesses,” says Brooks. “Control Risks is continuously enhancing its expertise to ensure that we remain ahead of these new challenges.”
