Christina Powers

Managing Director Cybersecurity Chicago

Created with Lunacy

Christina finds fulfillment in keeping her clients’ organizations safe from harm. A cybersecurity specialist, she works with a range of companies, including private equity firms and their portfolio companies, to understand risks and take proactive steps to mitigate them – before they can cause significant financial losses, interrupt operations, or affect investment value. 

Christina leads our Cybersecurity Advisory for Private Equity (CAPE) program – which provides ongoing visibility into security practices and risks across a firm’s portfolio and helps investors determine where they need to influence changes. She also conducts cybersecurity due diligence for potential acquisitions. 

Christina began her career in Accenture’s Technology Consulting Security practice, where she worked on implementing a global identity and access management solution for a global insurance company. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame and has attended management courses at the Yale School of Management. In 2022, Christina was named one of Consulting Magazine’s Rising Stars of the Profession and Women Leaders in Technology.
