Digital Forensics & eDiscovery PwC’s placement students combine detective mind-sets with cutting edge technology and techniques to help our clients when they are in crisis. We, as the Digital Forensics and eDiscovery team, are called in when complex problems need solving, requiring us to apply smart data-driven solutions to our clients’ issues. We could be detecting fraud, insider trading or employee misconduct, or working alongside lawyers on litigations and regulatory matters.
We are ready to respond to crisis events all over the world. We specialise in forensically capturing and understanding huge volumes of unstructured data such as emails, Office documents and instant chat messages which can be collected from computers, servers, the cloud and smartphones or tablets. Answering questions like: Who spoke to whom? How well did these people know each other? What did a person know and when?
As part of the team you’ll get to work on high profile projects and you will work alongside recognised industry specialists in computer forensics, data analytics, information management, electronic discovery, and disclosure.
In the UK alone we have more than 65 technology practitioners working from dedicated secure forensic laboratories in Belfast, Birmingham, Leeds and London.
You’ll be using leading forensic tools, such as EnCase, Nuix and Relativity, and query structured data, using SQL and Elasticsearch. We advise our clients on technical concepts in an easy to understand manner, and then present our findings through reports, public speaking and data visualisation.
PwC UK is also home to one of three PwC and Google Innovation Labs. Along with New York and Sydney, we are now acknowledged as a global location where organisations can access the PwC and Google collaborative experience to co-create solutions to their digital and business challenges.
At PwC, we do digital.
