Job Description
Businesses today are confronted daily by corruption, fraud and other unplanned events. Our growing Advisory Forensics Services practice protects opportunities for clients by working with them to strategically prepare for and manage the changeable complexities of the evolving threat landscape and by providing unparalleled resources and insights to investigate fraud, assist in risk management and mitigation, and identify and analyze vulnerabilities
- whether in one country or worldwide. With a strong Forensics presence in more than 40 countries, our strategic threat management approach enables us to work with international clients to anticipate, manage, and respond to threats, while also helping clients become "threat-smart."

Our Forensics professionals possess core forensics capabilities as well as forensic technology expertise and offer clients a unilateral advantage in investigating problems that extend across borders or that afflict multinational organizations.

Our Forensic Technology team helps clients protect opportunities in today's evolving business landscape. We apply advanced, strategic approaches to assist our clients with complex information management and analysis challenges by combining data analytics techniques, sophisticated technology tools, and information management principles to help our clients make well-informed decisions.

As part of the Forensic Services eDiscovery and Computer Forensics team, you will help identify and analyze vulnerabilities in order to manage and mitigate risk. Our in-depth process of forensic accounting diagnosis allows our clients to continue their business, recover lost funds and halt further economic losses.

PwC professionals assist companies involved in investigative or litigation to locate, recover, preserve and analyze electronically-stored information such as email while preserving its evidentiary value. When a computer system project goes awry, PwC professionals identify the nature of the failure, determine whether the system was improperly constructed in the first place, assess software applications for design flaws and evaluate whether the system or applications meet performance standards. In the case of a dispute, our IT professionals serve as expert witnesses.

For companies that need assistance preventing cyber crime, we can design and build a security system from scratch or test existing systems to ensure their integrity. We also help companies respond to specific security-related incidents to minimize their impact on the business.
