The opportunities that technology brings are matched only by its potential threats, which is why this growing team is an exciting and rewarding place to build a career. KPMG has been acknowledged by Forrester as a leader in the provision of cyber security consultancy. We are an expanding team that offers a range of cyber consulting services to meet a growing demand and provide a comprehensive range of cyber security solutions to many of the largest corporate companies in the world.

We help our clients to protect, detect and respond to high end 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 cyber attacks and other threats. We believe that cyber security is about helping our clients to harness business opportunities securely and protecting their clients’ personal information and intellectual property. For us, cyber security goes beyond technical issues and includes organisational design and changing peoples' behaviour; it is a holistic approach to understanding and mitigating the risk.

Our teams routinely work alongside KPMG’s broader advisory practice to link cyber security to financial crime, risk management, operational resilience, IT transformation and organisational design. Our 3 year graduate programme offers the client exposure and the support you need to build a successful career in cyber security consulting. You will develop core consulting and technical skills, commercial acumen, collaboration and team work with a flair for business to enable you to deliver real value to our clients.
