KPMG has been acknowledged by Forrester as a leader in the provision of cybersecurity consultancy. We are investing in building our cyber consulting team to meet a growing demand and provide a comprehensive range of services to many of the largest companies in the world.

We help our clients protect, detect and respond to complex cyber threats; helping them understand the cyber threat landscape, make sensible decisions on investment priorities, and build out the specialist capabilities they need to counter financial crime and other threats.

We believe that cyber security is about helping our clients to harness business opportunities safely and securely. For us, cyber security isn't just a technical issue, but one that engages the whole business and focuses on a holistic approach to understanding and mitigating the risk.

Our team works closely with KPMG's broader advisory practice to link cyber security to IT transformation and operational resilience.

Our clients are under regulatory scrutiny but are also continually battling to match a rapidly changing cyber threat landscape while harnessing the opportunities offered by digital services. We expect you to understand the world of our clients, the complexities of modern technologies, and to be able to translate complex cybersecurity issues into straightforward, credible, jargon-free advice to our clients; while making sure we can deliver the support they require.

If you can help our clients seize the opportunity offered by the digital world, and do so in a secure way, then you are the type of person we are looking for.

  • Using security architecture in defining security transformation
  • Linking cyber security to other consultancy offerings on risk management, resilience and IT transformation to provide holistic support to our clients
  • Delivering small-/medium-sized engagements and participate as team member in large-scale engagements
  • Developing an understanding of KPMG's broader offerings to enable identification of business opportunities
  • Supporting with presales and business development activities
  • Developing constructive client relationships, both inside and outside of KPMG
  • Building out and maintaining a professional network
