Cybersecurity, Privacy and Financial Crime Risk Management

Unite your lines of defence for a more secure and resilient digital future

Safeguarding your critical assets shouldn’t impede your business. After all, your digital defences can do more than protect your organization. They’re critical tools that differentiate your business and unlock new growth opportunities by building greater trust with your customers, partners and regulators.

Security, data privacy and financial crime are increasingly intertwined in our digital and data-driven world. Businesses are adapting and enhancing their resilience by integrating traditionally siloed strategies. This streamlines operations and opens cross-functional communications that help identify and integrate the right capabilities across your organization. It also creates competitive advantages through improved employee productivity, enhanced customer experiences and the ability to innovate quickly.

A human-led, tech-powered approach

PwC’s global community of solvers and alliance relationships bring an innovative combination of expertise and technologies that help organizations generate new value through their use of data.

But threat actors also see value in your data. Additionally, criminals may attempt to exploit your systems for illegal purposes. An intelligence-led approach that considers the distinct risks facing your specific industry helps you prepare for disruptive events—improving your ability to respond and emerge stronger.

Making data-driven and knowledge-based decisions help optimize costs and reduce the friction of entering into new customer relationships. But this is difficult when organizations are mired in complicated solutions, scrambling to keep pace with evolving regulations or struggling to find technical talent. Working with a fully integrated provider simplifies the complexity of cybersecurity, privacy and financial crime through personalized end-to-end solutions—from design to execution to operations—that are aligned with your business strategy.

The business challenges we’re solving for today

An effective cyber risk management program addresses specific risks and digital crown jewels for the business. It also identifies how management keeps current with new threats and includes a tested cyber-incident response plan that contains robust communication and brand-management protocols.

We can help you assess, design, strategize, implement and maintain an effective cybersecurity and cyber risk management program.

Building confidence in your cyber capabilities prepares your business to innovate, deliver value and remain competitive.

Our team helps organizations develop a strategy for secure digital transformation as well as implement cloud security, zero-trust solutions, OT security and emerging technologies.

Protect your most critical assets in an ever-changing risk landscape by identifying new threats, faster.

We help organizations prepare, respond and emerge stronger from a disruptive event with incident response, disaster recovery, workforce strategies, managed services, cyber readiness and OT security solutions.


Companies want to use data to create value for their customers and society. But they need to show they’re using it in a trusted, secure and ethical way.

Our deep cybersecurity and privacy subject matter expertise helps organizations move beyond compliance to responsibly manage their data lifecycle in a way that lets them create, use, share and retire data securely and transparently.

Criminals are looking for opportunities to exploit financial services systems to generate, launder and access proceeds of crime. Regulatory, financial and reputational risks stemming from fraud, sanctions circumventions and other crimes are increasing.

Our financial crime advisory and managed services simplifies how organizations prevent, monitor and respond to financial crime threats. We help organizations demonstrate compliance and focus on growing their business through vulnerability assessments, compliance program evaluations, gap analyses and testing.

Our ecosystem of alliances

We combine PwC’s expertise with powerful technology from our alliance ecosystem to help you transform your business with confidence.

We take a vendor-agnostic approach to helping you find the technology solutions that are the right fit for your organization. Together, we can help you unlock the full potential of technology so it delivers the capabilities you need to enhance your resilience while enabling innovation and growth.
