I would like to have an answer on this one. If you like to discuss the
training program that E&Y offers their people in the terms of how to
conduct a security audit, write a proposal, etc. My observations over the
last several months is that several people from another big six firm have
just recently joined E&Y Security practice, therefore in my belief brought
with them their experience and business methodology, which is then migrated
into E&Y's practice thus really not allowing customers to see the
difference between one big six firm and E&Y..
If you like to explain the difference and the quality of work E&Y offers
over other big six firms, I more than welcome that.
