The opportunity

The cybersecurity landscape is in a constant state of change. Organizations today must increasingly rely on new and disruptive technologies to help them grow and differentiate in the evolving marketplace. Organizations that lack effective cybersecurity measures to help manage this change, face breaking the trust of their customers, stakeholders, and the marketplace while exposing themselves to ever increasing risk. Our Cybersecurity practice works with a broad range of clients to assist them in gaining insights to their cybersecurity risks through a variety of assessments, transformational program strategy designs, and technology implementations. EY’s Cybersecurity solutions are organized within five competencies, which includes the following:

  1. Strategy, Risk, Compliance and Resilience – These solutions help organizations evaluate the effectiveness and efficiencies of their cybersecurity program in context of the business growth and operations strategies.

  2. Data Protection and Privacy – These solutions are designed to help organizations protect their information over the full data lifecycle - from acquisition to disposal. The service offering helps companies and organizations stay up to date with data security and data privacy good practices, as well as compliancy with regulation, in a constantly evolving threat environment and regulatory landscape.

  3. Identity and Access Management –These solutions are designed to help organizations with their definition of access management strategy, governance, access transformation, and ongoing operations. The solutions help organizations ensure the right users validate who they are and get access to the right organization resources.

  4. Architecture, Engineering, and Emerging Technology –These solutions are designed to help organizations protect themselves from adversaries that would seek to exploit weaknesses in the design, implementation, and operation of their technical security controls, including disruptive technologies in the marketplace.

  5. Next Generation Security Operations and Response – These solutions help organizations proactively identify and manage risk, monitor threats, and investigate the effects of real-world attacks.

You’ll work alongside respected Cybersecurity professionals across diverse set of clients and industry sectors, learning about and using the latest tools and techniques to identify and overcome some of the most relevant and pressing cybersecurity risks faced by our clients.
