Cybersecurity and Privacy

Harness the opportunities from building your resilience to cybersecurity threats and privacy breaches

We not only protect business value, but we also create it by using cybersecurity and privacy as a tool to build trust in a digital, data-driven world.


What is cybersecurity? Cybersecurity refers to the protection of information where technology of any form is involved. As companies pivot toward digital business models, exponentially more data is 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 also has exposed organizations to new digital vulnerabilities, making effective protection against cybersecurity threats and privacy breaches more important than ever. PwC can help you take a broader view of cybersecurity and privacy as both protectors and enablers of the business.

Four components to creating value through enhanced cybersecurity

Strategy & Transformation: Growth through digital transformation

Many organizations transform their business model by using emerging technologies to develop new products, services, or ways of doing business. However, organizations don’t always consider the emerging cyber threats that could impact their business imperatives. PwC can help you design transformation strategies with security in mind from the very start, with the foresight to help you see what is on the other side of the leading edge.

Privacy & Consumer Protection: 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 when using data, resulting in missed business opportunities or regulatory breaches which consequently reduces trust. PwC 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 to create value and enhance customer trust.

Implementation & Operation: Maximize return from cybersecurity technology investments

Business leaders seek to focus on opportunities that move their business forward, yet they’re often mired by complex cybersecurity technologies. PwC can help you efficiently integrate cybersecurity technologies into your business, manage them to deliver continuous operational improvements and increase return on your investments.

Incident & Threat Management: Manage impact to your business

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