Digital Trust and Cyber Security 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. Information security, data protection and cyber security are becoming more and more important to these digital leaders.

PA’s Digital Trust and Cyber Security team works with organisations to manage, protect and make the most of their information assets in order to build strong brands and business models. This means demonstrating integrity in the way that data is handled and building confidence in their measures to mitigate cyber threats.

Your role in Digital Trust and Cyber Security

We all have digital footprints, but not all of us are awake to the risks posed by the changing cyber threat landscape. Your challenge is to ensure that our clients stay informed about threats and able to protect their digital assets and business systems. 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 security technologies and incident response, and to take on assignments in different sectors.
