Cybersecurity- Incident & Breach Response-Experienced Associate

Published date Posted on Indeed on Jan 15, 2022 (122 d ago)

A career in our Incident and Crisis Management practice, within Cybersecurity and Privacy services, will provide you with the opportunity to help our clients implement an effective cybersecurity programme that protects against threats, propels transformation, and drives growth. As companies pivot toward a digital business model, exponentially more data is generated and shared among organisations, partners and customers. You’ll play an integral role in helping our clients ensure they are protected by developing transformation strategies focused on security, efficiently integrate and manage new or existing technology systems to deliver continuous operational improvements and increase their cybersecurity investment, and detect, respond, and remediate threats.

Our team helps organisations manage their controls over access to critical systems and assets during a crisis or an active cyber threat. As part of the team, you’ll help us develop controls to stay ahead of a crisis, but also help us maintain security and information risk by responding and remediating any current or future cyber threats.

To really stand out and make us fit for the future in a constantly changing world, each and every one of us at PwC needs to be a purpose-led and values-driven leader at every level. To help us achieve this we have the PwC Professional; our global leadership development framework. It gives us a single set of expectations across our lines, geographies and career paths, and provides transparency on the skills we need as individuals to be successful and progress in our careers, now and in the future.

As an Associate, you'll work as part of a team of problem solvers, helping to solve complex business issues from strategy to execution. PwC Professional skills and responsibilities for this management level include but are not limited to:

  • Invite and give in the moment feedback in a constructive manner.
  • Share and collaborate effectively with others.
  • Identify and make suggestions for improvements when problems and/or opportunities arise.
  • Handle, manipulate and analyse data and information responsibly.
  • Follow risk management and compliance procedures.
  • Keep up-to-date with developments in area of specialism.
  • Communicate confidently in a clear, concise and articulate manner – verbally and in the materials I produce.
  • Build and maintain an internal and external network.
  • Seek opportunities to learn about how PwC works as a global network of firms.
  • Uphold the firm's code of ethics and business conduct.
