Backbone Consultants has progressively built its reputation on delivering premium quality Information Technology (IT) Risk Advisory Services while supplying best-in-class customer service to our business partners. Originally established by Walter Zuniga in 2008, the company has developed a strong expertise in the areas of cybersecurity, IT audit, and data privacy. Through tireless efforts and savvy business decisions, Backbone brought on new clients and established new corporate partnerships.



As a result of continued success and a steady increase in market demand, Walter looked to his most trusted and longstanding business partners to begin talks of an expansion. With careful consideration and over a year of extensive planning, in 2014 Backbone added Jacob Carroll and Nikhil D’Souza to its leadership team. The three were former Deloitte colleagues that had excelled in working together and throughout the years had constructed deep ties both personally and professionally.



Growth through onboarding additional handpicked professionals from prior workplace relationships, Backbone has reaffirmed the company’s core mission, business values and ethical practices. Through the continued buildout, the company has ramped up its consulting capacity and added additional areas of technical expertise.


Backbone Consultants is now better poised to handle a broad spectrum of industries, techonology domains, and business operations. The Backbone team has relocated to Minneapolis, MN to allow further growth and to better serve our clients. Backbone continues to strategically partner with companies of varying size and industry to deliver topnotch IT Risk Advisory services.
