Mustafa, who brings more than 20 years of experience with him, began his career at Accenture and joins Crowe from a Big Four firm where he led the Financial Services Technology Internal Audit practice, delivering complex assurance and advisory projects focused on technology risk.

Mustafa’s expertise encompasses overall technology strategy and governance, technology resilience, cybersecurity and data privacy, as well as tech-related regulation and compliance.

As part of his role at Crowe, Mustafa will support the development of the firm’s technology risk assurance and consulting strategy nationwide, further growing the market-leading Risk practice.

“Mustafa joins the firm as we enter the next phase of our technology risk development and is part of a wider strategic growth in our advisory services. We have invested significantly in our technology and data analytics offerings and Mustafa’s experience and leadership will be critical in offering a differentiated service to clients.”

Mustafa Iqbal, Partner, comments:

The economic downturn has renewed organisations’ focus on cost reduction, strengthening supply chains and shoring up value creation through digital transformation. Technology strategy will continue to be a key differentiator for organisations and digital trust will become even more indispensable as companies strive to transform their business models and operations. I look forward to helping clients to be aware of, and better prepared for, the variety of complex technology risk challenges.”

Nigel Bostock, Chief Executive at Crowe, says:

“Mustafa’s appointment is a great addition to our award-winning team and his focus area reflects a growing need for organisations across all sectors to take steps to address technology-related risk. Increased adoption of, and reliance on, new and emerging technologies brings with it great opportunity, but also a requirement to understand and mitigate associated risk. Mustafa’s involvement in expanding our digital audit and analytics capabilities will also be crucial as we continue to adapt our service offering.”
