We are currently seeking intern and co-op students to join our Technology Risk practice within the Business Consulting sub-service line from Sept-Dec 2021.

About the Technology Risk Practice:
Technology is transforming the way businesses operate. New technologies enable businesses to deliver new services, engage in new markets, and to change the way they operate. However, risks are attendant with every new opportunity. Our clients seek independent advice and assurance over diverse issues which include: the design and operation of their internal controls, the security of their business critical systems, the delivery of major IT enabled programmes, their relationships with third parties, and their management, stewardship and ability to exploit business critical data.
