Cybersecurity

Innovate and transform securely to create new value for society in a digital, data-driven world

Protect and create business value

As companies pivot toward a digital business model, exponentially more data is being generated and shared among organizations, partners and customers. This digital information has become the lifeblood of today’s interconnected business ecosystem and is increasingly valuable to organizations—and to skilled threat actors. Digitization has also exposed organizations to new vulnerabilities, making effective protection against cybersecurity threats and privacy breaches more important than ever.

We can help you take a broader view of cybersecurity and privacy as both protectors and enablers of the business. This will position you to innovate and transform with speed and confidence to create new value for society.

Become more resilient and build digital trust

Grow through secure digital transformation

Many organizations transform their business model by using emerging technologies to develop new products, services or ways of doing business. But organizations don’t always consider the emerging cyber threats that could impact their business imperatives. We can help you design transformation strategies with security in mind from the start.

Use data with confidence to create value

Organizations face a growing patchwork of new data protection and privacy laws in different territories (particularly the EU). This creates doubts for organizations as they use data, resulting in missed business opportunities or regulatory breaches. We can help you craft a privacy and data use program compliant with global data-privacy regulations that will allow you to use data with confidence.

Increase return from cybersecurity technology investments

Business leaders want to focus on opportunities that will move their business forward, yet these opportunities are often mired in complex cybersecurity technologies. We can help you efficiently integrate cybersecurity technologies into your business, manage them to deliver continuous operational improvements and increase return on your investments.

Manage impact to your business

Business leaders know they need to rapidly and effectively respond to threats, but many lack confidence in their plans. If you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your incident response plan, you can better prepare for and manage a potential security incident. We can help you detect, respond, investigate and remediate threats across the incident-management life cycle using customized threat intelligence and proven methods.

How we can help

Operational Technology (OT) & Internet of Things (IoT) Security

Industrial & IoT Security

In pursuit of operational efficiencies and resilience, organizations are implementing new technologies (e.g. industrial systems, robotics, IoT, 5G) in their front office, back office, core operations and supply chain functions. This is introducing new threats related to safety, reliability and availability. Our OT & IoT security solutions help organizations build digital trust and resilience while also accelerating value creation.

Cloud security

Cloud Secutiry

Many organizations are adopting cloud technologies to increase agility and resilience. But security and privacy concerns are slowing down cloud transformation programs. Traditional approaches to security and privacy aren’t scalable and sustainable for cloud. Our cloud security solutions help organizations secure their hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems by using cloud native security capabilities, automation and DevSecOps practices and by integrating with enterprise security capabilities.

Customer & Citizen Protection

Organizations are increasingly implementing multi-channel strategies (e.g. online, mobile, chatbots, contact centre) to provide an integrated customer experience and increase operational and revenue resilience. Our customer and citizen protection solutions help organizations protect their services and transactions across channels by integrating, optimizing and maturing capabilities across cyber, privacy and financial crime in a way that improves customer experiences.

Data trust

Data Trust

Organizations are collecting and creating an unprecedented amount of sensitive information (e.g. customer or citizen data, classified data, research data, proprietary data) to use and share. Data trust enables organizations to unlock value from data securely and ethically by integrating, optimizing and maturing privacy, data protection and data governance practices.
