Information Security: What does this mean for you?

Given recent high profile events in both the private and public sector, information security has never been higher on the board agenda. Reputation, trust and brand value can all be seriously affected by information loss and theft.

Recent events have often erroneously been attributed to technology issues, and while technology is one of the key components to better information security, equal attention needs to be paid to people and organisations, culture and processes.

Are you prepared?

PwC brings a multi-disciplinary approach to information security, addressing the key components of strategy, people, process, technology and compliance. We recognise that the 'one-size-fits all' approach does not work, as it fails to take account of an organisation's strengths and weaknesses, and what makes sense in both the short and long term.

One thing we are clear about from our experience is how 'tone at the top' will have a dramatic impact on the rest of an organisation, and we have considerable experience working with organisations to ensure this tone is effectively translated, articulated and measured at the front-line.

Our integrated approach recognises the multi-faceted nature of information security and draws on specialists in process improvement, value management, change management, human resources, forensics, risk and PwC's own legal firm.
