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. 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, organisation, culture and processes.

To reduce the risk of business disruptions, meet regulatory compliance objectives and adequately respond to complex security breaches, organizations must integrate security infrastructures as well as constantly monitor standards, policies and controls to stay in line with established parameters. By gaining complete visibility into the security infrastructure, organizations are also able to remediate security gaps quickly.
PwC professionals work closely with clients to identify risk areas and with executives to establish priorities for remediation. Using proven methodologies and deep industry knowledge, we help organizations integrate a security infrastructure (people, processes and technology) and implement standardized processes. With a comprehensive view of security, organizations obtain a realistic picture of their weaknesses and can proactively take action to protect information assets.
Managing security from this holistic standpoint makes it easier to monitor conformity with established standards and policies as well as maintain asset risk exposure within a known and accepted range. Services we provide include the following:
