Graduate Digital Audit, Edinburgh, Autumn 2023
We’re a specialist team within our Audit practice that works hand in hand with the external audit teams to bring together process, controls and technology expertise to deliver integrated audits in an increasingly digitised world.
There are two sides to Digital Audit:
Auditing Digital: Auditing our client’s technology to give them assurance that security and controls are in place. This includes infrastructure, Cloud, and applications. You’ll gain an understanding of end-to-end processes and how business applications are utilised, controlled and optimised.
Digital Auditing: Using our latest tools to help digitise the way we deliver audits through automation, artificial intelligence data analytics and innovation – as well as using PwC developed tools and industry leading software to audit our clients.
