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 today’s 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.
The growing digitization of today's world brings along great advantages such as greater efficiency and the possibility of working from home. The growing dependency on the internet however also has a downside. The threat landscape of organization has changed considerably over the last few years due to the emergence of new cyber risks. This requires a paradigm shift in the ecosystem of cybersecurity, away from a mere technical perspective towards a greater focus on the human factor. In essence, security should be an integral part of the organization and its employees. Such an established secure culture will make employees a human firewall instead of the weakest link in today's threat environment. How is this to be done?
PwC incorporates four key elements to help you take a broader view of cybersecurity and privacy as both protectors and enablers of the business.
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.
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.
Organization leaders seek to focus on opportunities that move their business forward, yet they’re often mired by today’s 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.
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.
