"Cybersecurity and privacy are more important than ever -- and top of mind for CEOs around the globe. Over the course of his career, Sean has consulted in many areas involving cybersecurity and privacy, including some of the most prolific cyber breaches, providing expertise and guidance to top executives and boards. In his expanded role, Sean will bring his expertise to PwC’s Cybersecurity and Privacy practice globally, scaling PwC’s offerings and helping clients build trust and resilience."

We are laser-focused on helping clients build trust and resilience as they navigate geopolitical and economic uncertainty", said Sean Joyce. "This means globally scaling our cybersecurity and data privacy offerings to protect, defend, and support our clients as they undergo massive digital transformations, amass more data, and navigate a volatile and always changing cyber threat landscape."
