Information Security

Data security in the cyber age

Given recent high profile events in both the private and public sector, information and cyber security has never been higher on the board agenda. Reputation, trust and brand value can all be seriously affected by information loss and theft.
Recent incidents have often erroneously been attributed to technology issues, and while technology is one of the key components to better information and cyber security, equal attention needs to be paid to people and organisation, culture and processes.

Count on us:

  • to assess and benchmark information security including cyber security risks, protection against data leaks, cloud computing readiness and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements related to data and privacy protection (e.g. PCI DSS)
  • to design and implement a robust information security strategy, future operating model, governance and solutions including data loss prevention (DLP), information rights management and identity management solutions
  • to assist in remediation and crisis management, from cyber crisis management (e.g. legal and communication) to forensics, post-crisis lessons learnt and remediation project management.

Your benefits:

PwC brings a multi-disciplinary approach to information and cyber security, addressing the key components of strategy, people, process, technology and compliance. We recognise that the one-size-fits all approach does not work, as it fails to take account of an organisation's strengths and weaknesses and what makes sense in both the short and long term. PwC's approach to information security blends business insight with a broader view of risk. We help clients to exploit opportunities by understanding their business drivers and threats and building in appropriate security enablers.
