Cybersecurity and data protection: PwC

Digital Risk Solutions

Our business solutions

Digital technology has become the world’s touchpoint, connecting, informing, and enabling life at every level, from individuals to institutions. For today’s businesses, digital is integral — woven so deeply into strategy, infrastructure, operations, and products/services that in a very real sense, business and IT have become one.

Read our case study:How we helped a multi-national company demonstrate a defensible security posture to its regulators, customers, and other key stakeholders.

A multinational company had gradually let its information security investments fall behind its real-world needs. Its board, CEO, and CIO were concerned that the organization could not readily demonstrate a consistent, defensible security posture to its regulators, customers, and other key stakeholders.

How we helped:

Within one week of winning the contract, PwC mobilized a global team of over 35 information security practitioners to address the client’s problems. We leveraged a consistent global methodology and a leading security framework (ISO 27002) to conduct an accelerated security assessment across the company’s ten business units. Our team aligned industry leading practices to each business unit and delivered a roadmap of information security initiatives to achieve the agreed-upon level of compliance within the organization.

The result:

  • The company achieved a deeper understanding of its current information security risks, along with the insights necessary to develop comprehensive remediation efforts.
  • The company was given insights into leading practices across business units, which historically had not been communicated to the wider company.
  • The company replaced its IT control generalists with a system of rapidly deployable resources with technical security capabilities aligned to various industries.
