Cybersecurity and Privacy

Balance security and opportunity to move forward boldly

Multiplying cyber threats have made an effective cybersecurity program a critical business requirement. PwC’s Cybersecurity and Privacy practice helps organizations protect against threats, propel transformation and pursue growth.

Focus on cybersecurity and privacy to achieve your goals

As companies pivot toward a digital business model, exponentially more data is generated and shared among organizations, partners and customers. This digital information has become the lifeblood of the interconnected business ecosystem and is increasingly valuable to organizations—and to skilled threat actors. Business digitization also has exposed companies to new digital vulnerabilities, making effective cybersecurity and privacy more important than ever. PwC incorporates four key elements to help you take a broader view of cybersecurity and privacy as both protectors and enablers of the business.

Four components to propel transformation and achieve growth

Strategy and transformation: growth through new technologies 

Many organizations are pursuing emerging technologies to develop new products, services or ways of doing business. However, companies don’t always consider the emerging cybersecurity threats that could impact these systems after they’re implemented. PwC can help you design transformation strategies with security in mind from the very start, with the foresight to help you see what’s on the other side of the leading edge.

Privacy and consumer protection: build trust and spark growth

Companies face a growing patchwork of new data protection and privacy laws in different territories (particularly the EU). When leaders can expertly determine how to collect, use and destroy data, they can see safer and more effective ways to use it to create value. PwC can help you craft a privacy program that can enhance customer trust and compliance with global data-privacy regulations.

Implementation and operations: integrate, manage and improve technologies

Organization leaders seek to focus on opportunities that move their business forward, yet they’re often mired by urgent cybersecurity and privacy challenges. PwC can help you efficiently integrate new and existing technology systems into your business, as well as actively manage them to deliver continuous operational improvements and increase your cybersecurity investment.

Incident and threat management: identify, respond to and remediate threats

Leaders know they need to rapidly and effectively respond to threats, but many lack confidence in their plans. A clear view of your incident response plan’s strengths and weaknesses is the first step in preparing you to confidently manage a potential security incident. PwC can help detect, respond to, investigate and remediate threats across the incident-management life cycle. We provide customized threat intelligence and, should an incident occur, help you respond with proven tools and methodologies.
