PwC Named a Leader in Cybersecurity Consulting for Second Consecutive Year

 
PwC was recognized as a leader in Cybersecurity Consulting in 2018 by ALM consulting. ALM highlights PwC for its holistic “one-firm” approach, bringing together various key disciplines to provide tailored solutions that directly address clients’ needs. The report also notes PwC’s continued investment in innovation, IP, delivery accelerators, partnerships and alliances, and service delivery methodologies.
 
Laura Becker, author of the ALM report, highlights PwC’s ability to create strong relationships with the client and understand their business operations in order to deliver business-focused, cybersecurity and privacy transformation strategies that support growth. Becker states, “PwC gains internal insights with a top-down approach to evaluate the organization and build trust with key stakeholders through interviews, workshops and assessments using its skilled teams, which combine deep technical expertise in cybersecurity and technologies with industry and functional domain knowledge.”
 
“Being named a leader in Cybersecurity Consulting by ALM for the second year running is a testament to the talented people in our practice and the strong relationships we have built with our clients,” said Sean Joyce, US Cybersecurity Leader, PwC. “To help our clients combat the constantly evolving digital threat landscape, it’s important we continue investing in developing our people and building innovative solutions.”
Cybersecurity is top of mind for the Board and C-suite due to the increasing sophistication of attacks and a constantly evolving digital threat landscape. PwC is noted for taking the time to understand the client and then implement an enterprise-wide solution. The report highlights PwC’s “strong relationships with the C-suite, Board, and other key stakeholders across business units as well as its strength as a systems integrator. The firm shares and transitions knowledge to the client, delivering a cybersecurity and privacy proposition with business value and return on investment.”
 
Summing up PwC’s method, Becker states, “PwC’s approach to cybersecurity and privacy is grounded in digital transformation, resilience, data, and five strategic priorities: secure business transformation (e.g., security and privacy by design, third-party risk management, digital risk management and deals due diligence); cyber resilience (e.g., crisis management, application asset inventory, threat intelligence services and platforms, and incident response); and trusted data optimization (e.g., trusted data lifecycle management, data protection, global privacy frameworks). The last two priorities are focused within the firm: people (committing to getting the best people, training internally and externally, upskilling the digital fitness of the practice, and expanding academic programs and innovation) and technology and innovation (through investments in digital accelerators, cyber labs, the business, experience, and technology (BXT) philosophy for client engagement, R&D through PwC New Ventures, joint business relationships, and co-creation partnerships).”
