Cybersecurity and Privacy

Cybersecurity and privacy have sped the shift to remote work, helped us safely monitor our health during a pandemic, secured a veritable explosion of digital data and much more. They make it possible to collaborate across time and distance in the cloud, to buy and sell goods and services online, and even to collect and analyze data on customers’ behaviors so we can offer them customized, personalized experiences.

To keep it all secure, though, cybersecurity and privacy professionals have to stay vigilant against a growing number of threats from nation-states, ransomware and organized crime — each potentially more devastating than the last. No one is immune: not top federal agencies, not Fortune 500 companies.

Everything is at stake, and everyone is getting involved. Security pros, boards of directors, and the C-suite alike are springing to action, collaborating internally and with the public sector every week or even, in many cases, every day, according to PwC’s 2021 US Digital Trust Insights Snapshot Survey.

What it takes to be cyber savvy

Successful cybersecurity has two primary aims: mastering the fundamentals of digital governance and risk management for day-to-day defense, and anticipating new threats so the organization can forge ahead with confidence into new digital terrain. PwC’s Cyber & Privacy Innovation Institute helps companies do both.  

Cyber-savvy senior execs know that when cybersecurity teams are playing catch-up to the business’s ambitions, they’re at a severe disadvantage. Good cybersecurity doesn’t myopically focus on the business at hand: It’s visionary, anticipating what’s to come and laying the groundwork so that, whatever the business’s next venture, it can go forth boldly and securely.

To enable successful business transformation, cybersecurity has to transform, too — a process that involves resetting cyber strategy, rethinking cyber budgets, quantifying cyber risks, building resilience and future-proofing security teams.
