Our Forensic Technology team helps clients manage vast amounts of electronic data and navigate the legal and business processes that are mandated by critical events
Prevention is even better; knowing where vulnerabilities are and managing the risks involved. When disputes or regulatory investigations arise, a timely resolution relies on organisations being prepared. And this is what we help our clients with every day.
You can join us in one of the following teams:
Financial Crime Analytics sits within our Forensics practice and involves the analysis of vast quantities of data using cutting-edge technologies and advanced statistical techniques in order to discover insights for our worldwide clients. Our remit is broad and our aspiration clear: to be the unavoidable voice in the ongoing and urgent fight against financial crime. There can be no place in a trusted financial system for terrorists, drug traffickers, market abusers and money launderers. To stay ahead of changing crime, we have to keep changing ourselves by constantly innovating and drawing on the very latest technologies.
In an increasingly digitised world, instances of fraud and electronic crime are becoming more and more common. Forensic Investigative Analytics involves the analysis of data in order to discover meaningful patterns, measure historic events or predict the likelihood of future ones. Much of our work requires us to analyse vast quantities of electronic data, using advanced statistical techniques to extract meaningful insights for our worldwide clients. As we operate in an environment where speed of response is often critical to our clients, we are constantly innovating and drawing on the very latest technologies.
Searching the personal computer and smartphone of an executive suspected of intellectual property theft, or identifying emails containing evidence of price fixing. These are the kinds of challenges we tackle every day as part of the team within one of the largest dedicated forensic technology practices in the world. In simple terms, we specialise in providing the technology skills required to respond to crisis events such as legal disputes or regulatory investigations.
We use data discovery technology to analyse file servers, endpoints (such as laptops and desktops) and other data repositories to help clients know what data they have, where it is, and who can access it. Our client offerings focus around three key areas: helping clients comply with regulations such as GDPR by ensuring personally identifiable information is stored securely and not for longer than is necessary, ensuring that intellectual property is not stored in areas or on devices where it should not be, and, finally, helping clients reduce the data they store which is out of compliance with their retention policy. Once we find non-compliant data we then help clients remediate it in order to reduce their risks.
PwC works with some of the largest UK and international organisations. As these organisations are collecting and using more data than ever before, the use of technology plays an integral role in driving their business and serving their customers. We design, build and deliver solutions using a number of cutting edge tools to improve our client’s business and solve commercial challenges.
When you join the Forensic Technology team you’ll receive training in a wide range of technical and non-technical skills. This can include data manipulation techniques, machine learning, big data technologies, programming and advanced data visualisation training and certifications. We’ll also encourage you to attend in-depth training led by our technology partners based on your individual development needs.
