Job description

Your challenge
Be an expert on Information Security. Ensure businesses are alert to risk. Keep them one step ahead of digital threats, and give them the confidence to capitalise on digital opportunity. Enable them to become dependable, trusted digital businesses.

Digital at PA Consulting Group
Digital has changed business forever. Organisations that have embraced digital are leading their industry and influencing others – and those that haven’t are falling behind. We bring together digital experts with the skills and experience required to rebuild businesses from top to bottom, creating a digital culture for exceptional long-term success.

The Cyber and Information Security team works with organisations to manage, protect and make the most of their information assets in order to build strong relationships, brands and reputations. This means demonstrating integrity in the way that data is handled and building confidence in the measures in place to mitigate cyber threats.

Your role in Cyber and Information Security
We all have digital footprints, but not all of us are awake to the risks posed by the changing digital landscape. Your challenge is to ensure that our clients stay informed, prepared and enabled to protect and maximise their digital assets. As your career progresses, you can expect to work across all areas of the information security spectrum, from developing cyber security strategy to implementation of various security technologies, and to take on assignments in different sectors. This will provide you with broad base of experience from which to build an outstanding career.

The start date for this role will be in September 2018.
