Technology-driven Legal Advice

Build safer and more efficient data protection programs

Compared to manual tracking tools, digital data protection management solutions lower your exposure and speed up key workflows. We can build a privacy-minded solution for you or evaluate and implement third-party products. PwC has joint business relationships with several leading software providers.

Calculate, visualize and lower risks

PwC can turn your maturity and risk assessments into actionable numbers, graphs and charts. We help you clearly see risks so you can uncover insights and present data protection information to management and other stakeholders with ease.


Uncover potential weaknesses

AI-driven tools can help you spot potential weaknesses or irregularities in your data activities, so you can take immediate mitigating actions. PwC helps you with legal-focused tools to protect your company information and personal data. We can also confirm legal requirements and establish standards to help you evaluate third-party solutions, vendors and proofs of concept.


Train a wider audience more effectively

With technology, you can efficiently and effectively train your entire organization on cyber and privacy compliance. We can build training and awareness programs using up-to-date e-learning tools, videos, webcasts, online campaigns and interactive documents. Virtual training programs complement on-site training experiences with PwC staff.

Manage crisis situations for minimal impact

We can help you respond quickly and appropriately to a data breach or security incident. By leveraging our Crisis App, forensic tools and communication tools (e.g., whistleblowing hotlines), PwC clients are able to navigate crisis situations with the least possible impact. Our technology seamlessly connects you to PwC’s global legal experts, so you get relevant information on high-priority issues in real-time and can respond with confidence.
