Kris McConkey, a director in the cyber security practice at the audit firm PwC, has been promoted to partner. He has been with the firm for nine years and leads its cyber threat detection and response team, who seek to remedy cyber attacks.
This year, PwC is promoting a record 53 new equity partners, a fifth more than last year, reflecting the firm says the more buoyant economy.
McConkey said: “I’m really excited by the opportunity to further enhance and grow our cyber security practice. We have been advising and providing hands-on assistance to our clients in the UK and across the globe on cyber security issues, and are seeing significant demand across all sectors. The cyber threat landscape is fast moving, as criminals become increasingly sophisticated in their approach. It is therefore a necessity that business leaders understand and address relevant threats, so that they can have confidence in their resilience and security in the digital age.”
PwC says that it’s recruiting record levels of young people to the firm, and will take on more than 1,500 graduates and more than 140 school leavers this year. Across all student programmes the firm will recruit around 2,500 students to full time, internship and work experience roles. Visit http://www.pwc.com/uk.
