Risk Assurance

Risk is a fact of life for business – and it is growing in importance to businesses around the world. It exists in various forms, from potential cybersecurity breaches to possible breaks in the supply chain. Risk cannot be avoided altogether, but it can be managed and mitigated. And, a business can prepare for what may be lurking around the corner. That’s where PwC’s Risk Assurance practice comes in.
