Why choose a career in cyber security at PwC UK?

In PwC UK’s cyber security team, we’re passionate about building a secure digital society. We are in a unique position to work with organisations to drive a tangible difference to their cyber security and are recognised by Forrester as a leading adviser in this area.

To do so we work with business leaders, government, educators, regulators and industry groups.

Through our research and security intelligence, we identify emerging cyber security risks and the evolution of existing threats. Our ability to connect deep technical insight with our knowledge of business and people means we can build understanding of the security frontline in the boardroom. This provides the clarity they need to lead their organisation securely and effectively. 

We work alongside our clients to embed cyber security throughout their organisation: building resilience, protecting sensitive data, and enabling them to focus on achieving their ambitions.

Cyber Security Advisory 

In Cyber Security Advisory, we address some of the most urgent issues faced by business. As organisations seek to provide more innovation to customers and increase the use of online services, the scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is evolving rapidly.

We help our clients understand the nature of cyber attacks and the impact on their business, by identifying security risks and planning effective ways to address these. We support client leadership teams to define their risk appetite and a proportionate target state of cyber capability and maturity to deliver it; we define operating and governance models to make cyber security a sustainable capability which responds to evolving business priorities; we also help clients define and assure complex control solutions to help them manage their risks.

You'll predominantly focus on consulting engagements for clients in the areas of transformation, risk advisory and mergers and acquisitions. You’ll be working across all industry sectors, on national accounts from one of our national hubs local to you. There may also be the opportunity to work on some of our international engagements overseas.

Cyber specialists

Our rapidly growing cyber specialist practice supports clients with prevention, detection, resilience and response to advanced cyber attacks. From crisis events such as data breaches or unauthorised access to targeted intrusions and advanced persistent threats (APTs).

You could be responsible for unpicking breach indicators from live memory captures, deploying monitoring agents across an enterprise, reverse engineering custom malware samples, or helping clients plan their organisational response to a cyber attack. Or, you could be investigating a targeted intrusion; communicating the extent of a breach to a Chief Information Security Officer; or helping clients better understand the vulnerabilities of their IT environments by simulating the actions of real-world threat actors.
