Cyber Security

In a landscape with an increasing number of threats and regulatory requirements, the link between security and digitalisation becomes even more important.

We help you and your organisation prevent, uncover and manage security breaches.


Valuable information and data must be protected and secured. This requires a team that can solve complex challenges in the boundaries between technology, law and privacy, internal control and risk management.

This is where PwC comes in.

Data Security

Access to data has never before been more important. Large amounts of data gives a huge competitive advantage in the market - this provides a unique opportunity in gaining insight into the world we live in.

But as you already know, valuable data can be lost in seconds.




We assist in tailoring a strategy that secures the company's most important assets.

The strategy is based on our "health check" where we ask the following questions:
  • Do you live by statutory requirements for information security and privacy?
  • How can the business detect and prevent unwanted access to the "crown jewels", and what will be required to reduce the risk to an acceptable level?
  • How does the data security work support the overall goals of the business?
  • How does the business invest in defence mechanisms, and who conducts the data security work?
  • How does the business handle cyber security in connection with acquisitions, expansion into new markets and product launches?
  • How does the business measure the cyber security work? How is the business status compared to others in the same industry?
  • What can the business earn from participating in information sharing programmes with other relevant companies and organisations?
  • How does the business relate to insurance against data theft, and what is covered by any insurance policies?
  • How does the business keep their employees up to date on knowledge of cyber security?
  • How does the business ensure that IT vendors safeguard enough security?
