Job Description
Under the Assurance umbrella, the Risk Assurance practice encompasses solutions that are driven by dynamic global markets which require companies to take actions to successfully address business risks and opportunities.

Our professionals work across sectors and develop deep competencies which allow them to advise both audit and non-audit clients. PwC has more than 3,700 Risk Assurance professionals in the US who are responsible for delivering quality audits, advising companies about how to solve complex problems and also take advantage of new business opportunities.

The emergence of digital technologies for delivering services is forcing companies to invest in their front office digital capabilities or run the risk of falling behind. Multiple forces such as tighter regulation, fast-paced customer demands, market shifts, unconventional foes and disruptive technologies are creating a new playing field for cybersecurity and privacy professionals.



PwC’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Solutions consulting practice helps decision makers implement the correct balance of strategy, technologies, processes, and resources to enable the business to achieve its goals while protecting the assets most critical to its competitive advantage, brand and shareholder value. Our professionals provide a range of solutions from helping clients develop a vision for their cybersecurity and privacy programs, designing and building a program, implementing and operating the program and providing assurance of their programs to Management or 3rd party stakeholders.
