Cybersecurity and Data Protection

Safe and savvy: we help you work around the risks and proactively combat cyberattacks and threats

Building trust to succeed in digital business

The digital world has huge advantages, but challenges as well. To operate successfully you have to cover all the cyber security bases, from securing the business environment to staying compliant with ever-changing security and privacy regulations. You have to master network security, and constantly monitor your system for vulnerabilities and threats such as phishing that compromise the personal information of your customers and staff.

PwC Switzerland can help you build and protect your business so you have the confidence to take the initiative, transform and thrive in an uncertain but highly rewarding environment. Everything we do revolves around trust. We call our approach All Eyes on Trust.

Our clients value the way we combine people, technology and business savvy to support you all the way from strategy to execution and operation.

Cybersecurity Crisis Simulation

Get ready for cyberattacks. We assess the status quo, test your efficiency and communication strategies, and screen the measures you apply and how you coordinate your protection efforts. We’ll enact breach scenarios as if they were actually taking place. The assessment will yield specific instructions and training so you’re prepared for emergency situations.


Cloud Compliance Monitoring

Comply with the law and stay on top of your data as you navigate the cloud. We analyse your data and processes and show you your options for data security and protection, access controls and identifying breaches.

Vulnerability Management

Get to know your weaknesses and resist breaches successfully. We provide vulnerability management as a service. This involves operating the scanning solution for you (ensuring the availability and functionality of the scanning solution). We carry out regular vulnerability scans, taking operational responsibility for implementing the vulnerability management process.

The days of perimeter security are over. Identities and access are now the key. We help you build a secure digital business around people by getting identity and access management right.


Data Protection, Privacy and Regulatory Compliance in Switzerland

Privacy is at the centre of trust. Identify your crown jewels – the data crucial to the survival and success of your business – and keep them safe. We help you proactively address privacy to build trust and give you a business advantage –while adhering to new regulations such as the GDPR and the new Swiss Data Protection Act. For example, we’ll use our interactive online platform MyDPO to help you monitor and demonstrate GDPR compliance. Learn more

Advanced Cyber Defence

It’s often not a question of whether your systems and information will be attacked, but when. Are you prepared, with the right partners, to respond quickly and decisively? The cybersecurity team in Switzerland can help you identify relevant cyber threats, see if your systems have been breached, test your security posture, and counter attacks – with incident response and forensics teams rated by Gartner and Forrester as the leader.

Cybersecurity as a Service

Many organisations face a dual challenge: meeting the growing cost of security and catching up with a lack of investment, and attracting and retaining the right security talent. PwC Switzerland managed security services help you address both aspects, giving you access to the right people and solutions whenever you need them, at a plannable and manageable cost.

Our strategic partnership

“Tech4Trust” powered by Trust Valley and PwC formed a strategic partnership to offer the unique acceleration programme in digital trust in Switzerland.
