KPMG Lower Gulf has strengthened its Cyber practice with Dimitrios Petropoulos, who returns to the region following an office transfer from the firm’s British organisation.

Dimitrios Petropoulos brings over 30 years of experience in information technology to the firm, specialising in cyber security and information risk management. He spent the past twenty-five years focused on information security, and has worked at corporate IT security groups, consulting firms, and solution providers.

Most recently at KPMG in the UK, Petropoulos was a Technical Director, advising C-level executives on information security strategy and transformation, and cyber defence.

Within the Cyber team, Petropoulos led a number of KPMG’s advisory services, including Security Transformation, Security Architecture, Cloud Security, DevSecOps and Infrastructure/Application Security. Prior to his time at the Big Four firm, he was a Principal in the Cyber practice of HPE Enterprise Solutions (later DXC Technology), focused on clients in the financial services sector.

Previously, Petropoulos spent over a decade in the Middle East, serving as CEO of IT Security Training & Solutions in Saudi Arabia and as Managing Director of cyber solutions provider ENCODE, where he established the GCC subsidiary and led the unit’s strong growth.

Earlier in his career, the KPMG partner gained hands-on technical experience in the field. “I have a long track record of designing infrastructure and application security architecture, delivering compliance and technical security audits, developing and monitoring security controls, and developing and implementing core technical IT security standards,” said Petropoulos.

Last year, both ALM and Forrester (two leading analyst firms that track capabilities and client satisfaction in the consulting scene) ranked KPMG among the top security consulting firms in the world.
