What is Cyber Security at EY?

We support our clients to understand and manage their cyber security risk, secure their data and systems, detect and manage their threats and vulnerabilities, and embed IT resilience.

As part of the Technology team, we help secure the way large organisations store their data – and their customers’ data. Sometimes that means helping them recover from attacks, too.

Applications to this programme are now open in the following location: London

What’s it like?

Cyber Security’s a hot topic. Meet Andy, who is thrilled to tell you how EY grads are given responsibilities to deliver important work – sometimes straight to CEOs.

How’s it structured?

This programme is all about giving you the best experiences and learning opportunities to develop a great career in Cyber Security. After an EY induction, you’ll attend a range of cyber training. We’ll then bring your core consulting skills up to speed and before too long you’ll be working on client projects in either Cyber Strategy and Transformation, Cyber Threat Management, Cyber Resilience, Identity and Access Management or Privacy and Data Protection.

You’ll have lots of on-the-job training and mentors to guide you through and may even be offered a six-month secondment outside of the Cyber team to learn how another area of our business works. By the end of the programme, you’ll have honed your skills even further, have a good idea of the area or areas you’d like to specialise in and, be a key part of EY’s Cyber Security practice.

Where could a technology career take you?

James’ career in technology all started one summer in Audit at EY. Your career path could be just as direct – or diverse.
