About our practice
Cyber security is one of the defining topics of our age, and cyber risk
represents one of the most significant strategic risks to PwC’s clients. In
a recent PwC survey, it remains the top risk in the minds of CEO’s
globally, with 91% of UK CEOs rating it as a significant concern.
Businesses are changing rapidly, facing disrupted supply chains, rapidly
changing workforces and accelerating digital transformation on an
unprecedented scale.
At PwC we help our clients transform, and our cyber security practice
enables them to execute that transformation securely and to become
more resilient to cyber security threats. Our cyber security practice
operates nationally, and serves clients holistically with strategy, risk and
governance advice, and with deep technical implementation and

demand from our clients for greater assistance in dealing with
increasingly complex cyber security risks, and support in executing their
change and growth agendas securely. We believe helping our clients
gain confidence in their digital future is essential to their growth, and as
a result our cyber security practice is one of the key growth priorities of
our firm.
Our purpose as a cyber security practice is to help solve complex
problems and build a secure digital society. Within our practice, you will
have the opportunity to broaden experience across industries, build
relationships with clients and senior groups, and be involved in big
business changes.
You’ll contribute to delivering cyber security to some of the world’s most
iconic companies and brands, and to helping them to build their cyber
defences, assure those defences and respond to incidents. Working in
cyber security at PwC will give you unparalleled breadth of experience,
and insight into how a wide range of client businesses work.
You’ll work in a team where we mix a supportive and collaborative
culture with a challenging and high performance one. You’ll be rewarded
for your contribution and impact in building our business and delivering
on our purpose.

You’ll be supported to develop your career by an experienced and close-
knit team who will invest in your career and experience and provide you
with mentoring and coaching to transition to PwC and grow your career
in our firm.
You will be part of a team that reports to the cyber delivery service
