Cyber Security

Combining experience, expertise and the latest technology to prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats

PwC’s Cyber Security practice addresses some of the most urgent issues faced by business. As organisations seek to provide more innovation to customers and increase the use of online services, the scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is evolving rapidly.

We help our clients understand the nature of cyber attacks and the impact on their business, by identifying security risks and planning effective ways to address these. We support client leadership teams to define their risk appetite and a proportionate target state of cyber capability and maturity to deliver it; we define operating and governance models to make cyber security a sustainable capability which responds to evolving business priorities; we also help clients define and assure complex control solutions to help them manage their risks.

Together, we’ll create a strategic understanding of how cyber risk affects your entire business; so you can take advantage of every opportunity, innovate confidently and grow securely.

Is cyber security the job of the future?
