PwC to double CEE Cybersecurity team to 500

09/03/20

PwC in Central and Eastern Europe (PwC CEE) will more than double its Cybersecurity & Privacy team to 500 people in the next three to four years, tapping the region’s deep pool of cyber talent to meet global demand for protection against malicious actors.

The PwC team, recognised by Forrester Wave as the No. 1 provider in Europe for its ability to blend technical skill with executive-level communication, helps local and global organisations with security strategy, risk reduction and crisis recovery.

Cybersecurity is gaining prominence on the agenda of global CEOs as digital transformation integrates technology with every part of the business. This change is happening at a time when companies are facing tighter regulatory requirements, increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks and a shortage of skilled talent. As a market leader in cybersecurity consulting services, we are heavily investing in our teams to support our clients in their new challenge to move security operations to the next generation: cloud-enabled, automated, AI-powered and integrated with digital transformation to defend against constantly evolving cyber threats.

The expansion of the team is also a response to the trend of global organisations setting up cybersecurity hubs in the CEE region. From locations including Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia, and others in CEE that are rich in cyber talent and close to our clients’ security hubs, PwC provides services such as: security monitoring and threat detection, DevOps for security platforms, incident response, ethical hacking and rapid risk reduction, vulnerability management, malware resilience and recovery, OT security monitoring, security architecture and identity & access management.

We’re challenging the status quo in managed security services through flexible partnerships with our clients and working closely with their security teams. Our continued investment in teams and technology accelerators is aimed at helping our clients transform their cyber resilience, improving cyber defence and making it easier for them to operate security.

Piotr Urban, PwC’s CEE Cybersecurity & Privacy Leader

The PwC team in the CEE region, which today numbers 200 professionals, works together with other PwC Cyber competence centres, including digital identity teams in the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, a threat intel and incident response team in the UK, and the OT/IoT security experience centre in Israel, as well as with leading security technology partners.
