PwC

As an Audit practice, we invested significantly in innovative technology to understand how our client’s processes, technologies and systems operate to provide a fair view on how they address their risks. As part of PwC’s global strategy, The New Equation, we’re investing significantly in skills, capabilities and technologies to address the breadth and complexity of the challenges that our clients face with their businesses and in society. One of our responses to this was establishing Tech Central, a technology focused function working alongside other PwC teams. Technology is now at the heart of how our clients deliver their services. The complexity of systems, increasing use of data and the continuous investment in technologies by our clients, creates new challenges, but equally, opportunities, as to how we assess our client risks and build trust in society.
