To securely realise the benefits of emerging technology such as the internet of things, wearable tech, smart metering, and ever more prevalent mobile access, requires a thorough understanding of security vulnerabilities as they emerge and the ability to respond to these in a timely fashion.

As part of PA Consulting Group, we are also able to combine our technical cyber security expertise with deep industry knowledge and skills in management consulting, technology and innovation. To find out more about what PA has to offer in the Communications and Technology sector, click here.
