Business digitalisation creates new jobs, boosts competitiveness and promotes development, while also creating new challenges in terms of cybersecurity and data security.
Cybersecurity 2.0 is not only based on the principles of protection, detection and response used earlier but it includes three new principles: promptness, complication, and anticipation:
Cybersecurity transformation services help organisations develop and transform from a reactive to a proactive and adaptive cybersecurity practice for a single corporate protection strategy.
To keep up with the fast growing cybersecurity threat environment, companies need knowledge, understanding, strategic planning, and teamwork. Our experts have comprehensive technical knowledge and experience as well as an understanding of business risks. We will help you devise a new cybersecurity strategy or improve your existing one to ensure it actively protects your company against today’s cyberthreats.
Develop your cybersecurity through PwC services:
To improve their competitive edge, companies need to improve their security measures – make the best use of new technology and quickly respond to threats when they arise, or best of all, before they arise (proactively). To improve their cybersecurity, many companies begin implementing LM/SEM/SIEM (Log Management/Security Event Management/ Security Information and Event Management) technology for IT event auditing, analysis and storage, as well as creating their own security operation centres (SOC) using a combination of technology, processes and trained employees to monitor security incidents and respond appropriately and quickly. All these systems are complex and very expensive, which makes their selection and implementation a complicated and time-consuming process that does not always guarantee a successful outcome.
PwC ITS experts have vast experience in creating and developing advanced monitoring and analytics centres as well as security management centres (SOC) in customer infrastructures. In this area we help our customers with these services:
Cybercriminals are rapidly evolving and using increasingly newer and more efficient technologies (ML and AI) in creating threats. Hackers can be outside or inside your company (often employed by it for years). It may well be that your information resources are tested and hacked, as autonomous viruses can carry out such unauthorised actions constantly. How cybersecure is your IT infrastructure? How can you proactively identify potential threats before they materialise? How can you avoid losing reputation in the eyes of customers? PwC ITS pentest team can help answer all these questions.
We test the cybersecurity of infrastructure and apps with a focus on identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities inherent in business critical IT infrastructure and apps (internal and external):
We have created a unique cybersecurity escape room where companies can check the cybersecurity knowledge and skills of their employees in an informal setting, as well as paying attention to common cybersecurity risks and how to prevent them.
Our experience suggests that one of the biggest security vulnerabilities is the human. No matter how much your company invests in security tools, platforms and infrastructure, an untrained and uneducated employee will cause the biggest threats to information security. During our social engineering tests, in about 78% of cases we penetrated the customer’s infrastructure using targeted employees. To prevent this, employees need to be educated on IT security issues not only theoretically but also practically so we encourage you to try our cybersecurity escape room simulation, which includes an informative lecture on IT security from PwC ITS experts and a hands-on game. Our cybersecurity escape room is suitable for a group of 10–20 participants.
The simulation participants help a hacker carry out a successful cyberattack. They act as hackers and carry out key types of cyberattack in a safe environment. The participants familiarise themselves with current cyberpenetration methods such as SQL injections and password attacks.
Our Escape Room will help you answer key questions and improve the understanding of cybersecurity among your employees:
According to market researchers, 90% of vulnerabilities exist in app source codes deeply buried in the developers’ workstations and not accessible to most security tools and tests.
Unfortunately most companies do not subject their app source codes to security checks and analysis, which causes dangerous security gaps in the stages between the new app development stage and their full-fledged launch in a production environment.
PwC ITS cybersecurity experts will carry out an in-depth analysis of your app codes to detect security vulnerabilities in:
Many companies and government agencies are facing increasingly advanced and harmful cyberattacks whose scale and complexity have grown dramatically in recent years. Their financial, operational and reputational impact can be immediate and can create long-term challenges to your development. That is why it is important for companies to understand what cybersecurity threats they face, how to respond to them and whether your company is prepared for a cybercrisis, given the new data security rules (e.g. GDPR) and digital transformation challenges in corporate development.
PwC’s cybersecurity crisis plan assessment and development service will help you escape from situations where your company detects a cyberincident or a data breach. The service provides a strategic framework and runs activities to ensure you are prepared for a cyberincident, know how to respond to it and begin coordinating recovery after the incident. The plan:
To ensure that your plan for overcoming cybersecurity crises is effective when a crisis sets in, the plan needs regular updates and checks. Keeping your plan in working condition is a continuous process in your company. PwC’s team of cyberexperts will ensure your readiness for a cybercrisis.
A company prepared for cybersecurity crisis is defined by the conditions below:
