Sophie De Ferranti is a Senior Managing Director within Teneo’s People Advisory business, having joined from a U.S. based Executive Search firm where she was responsible for leading the Global Cybersecurity Practice. In her earlier career she held a high security UN classified role at the NATO Headquarters in Brussels.

Cyber risk has been increasing in recent years as organisations embrace digitalisation, catalysed by Covid-19 and emerging geopolitical stress factors.
