What is the interview process like for a cyber consulting gig (strategy/risk) at a Big 4? Are case studies required?

I would prepare for a case enough to where you can take the problem and answer it in bucketed tree approach. The case I got was tech based but still a market entry case.

Ultimately for cyber, the case study portion of the interview matters less than it would for a traditional business consulting position within the firm. Just prepare aptly for the case, speak to what you know and you’ll do fine

Behavioral, team fit, personality, scenario questions. Like the “STAR” questions. Definitely no take home quizzes

I vaguely remember getting a scenario question. Wasn't very hard

For cyber.....nope

But definitely not a take home case
