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 assurance expertise. 

The Team

Our practice is experiencing significant growth which is driven by 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 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 leadership and will be an integral part of the team based in Cairo, as well as those delivering client transformation programmes across the PwC Global Network, including the UK, Germany and Middle East.
