From IT security to digital trust: how to help CISOs, DPOs and CEOs ensure they keep the organisation secure in a digital society.
According to the latest 2023 PwC Global CEO Survey, Cybersecurity remains one of the key levers that CEOs can draw on to protect their organisation from evolving risk - 48% of CEOs say they are increasing investment in cybersecurity or data privacy in response to rising geopolitical conflict. After a turbulent 12 months, it is no surprise that global CEOs identify inflation (40%), macroeconomic volatility (31%) and geopolitical conflict (25%) as their top three risks for the year ahead. Cyber is fourth (20%) and it's the top operational risk, remaining firmly on board agendas. The geopolitical environment and rapid digitisation continue to focus CEO attention on cyber risk.
When we look at the Luxembourg cut of the 26th Annual Global CEO Survey, and similar to the 2021 results, cyber threats still loom large on CEOs’ minds, with 28% and 32% of Luxembourg CEOs considering cyber risks as a key threat for the next year and the next 5 years respectively.
In the meantime, CISOs are facing an unlimited number of various attacks and risks everyday. DPOs see their mission evolve to ensure data security and privacy are respected, in a complex environment.
The PwC Cybersecurity and Privacy Day mission is to help CISOs, DPOs and CEOs ensure they keep their organisation secure in a digital society.
The main theme of this year’s event will focus on the topic of Leadership.
Cybersecurity and Privacy is not just a technology problem, it is a cultural and governance issue that affects businesses. Good governance and leadership at the top of an organisation is necessary to establish a cybersecurity and privacy culture and protect the firm as well as its customers. Good privacy and cybersecurity are quite simply good business practices and are essential in building business resilience. Supporting and promoting it has become a matter of good leadership.
According to Charles Darwin, "it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.
This year’s event will be held physically at PwC Luxembourg's premises, as follows:
