Deloitte Seeks Crypto Experts to Tackle Financial Crimes

Deloitte stands as one of the “Big Four” accounting powerhouses, delivering a broad spectrum of services, including auditing, consulting, tax consultancy, and financial advice to a diverse range of industry sectors.

The firm also works with blockchain technology, digital assets, and cryptocurrencies, potentially helping businesses navigate these sectors. Among its clientele in the crypto space, stablecoin issuer Circle has engaged Deloitte for auditing services.

Furthermore, Deloitte has partnered  with Chainalysis to enhance the capabilities in tracking and investigating digital assets.

Secret Clearance Needed for Sensitive Data Handling

Deloitte’s recent job listing for a cryptocurrency investigator stipulates the requirement for candidates to hold “Secret clearance”. This level of clearance allows individuals to access certain classified information designated by the US government.

The role is primarily geared towards aiding in cyber financial crime investigations, with a focus on combating crypto fraud and facilitating cooperation with law enforcement. Essential skills include expertise in Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and investigations on the dark web. Additionally, a comprehensive understanding of cryptocurrencies, digital assets, and compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act is crucial.

Prospective candidates should also have experience in cryptocurrency analysis to support federal investigations. They should also know how to use analytical tools such as Chainalysis, Elliptic, CipherTrace, TRM Labs, and Elementus.

Senior Cyber Crypto Analyst Position with Advanced Requirements

The Senior Cyber Crypto Analyst position at Deloitte, while akin to the role of a crypto investigator, demands distinct qualifications. This role specifically requires candidates to have an Active Top Secret security clearance , which allows them to handle Top Secret classified information. Furthermore, applicants must have a background in supporting law enforcement investigations and proficiency in utilizing cryptocurrency analysis tools.

Historically, Deloitte has posted more than 300 crypto-related job openings across the United States, encompassing positions such as Blockchain & Digital Assets Manager and Tax Manager, indicating the firm’s deepening involvement in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector.
