Become part of the team

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. 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. Over 12 months, you will become an expert on Information and Cyber 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. 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. This will provide you with broad base of experience from which to build an outstanding career.
