One of the most exciting aspects of the PwC Cybersecurity Day is the Pitching competition. Last year’s edition of the pitching event was the most successful so far, with more than 50 candidatures. Applications for this year are now open.
What is PwC looking for?
The top five innovative solutions addressing major cybersecurity challenges.
- Pitch your solution and gain credibility with international investors and corporate stakeholders.
- Increase your visibility through international media exposure.
- Benefit from professional coaching by the PwC team.
- Be part of a European level event in Cybersecurity (Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg 2020).
The Cybersecurity Solution of the Year Award will be conferred by the Jury to the candidate that demonstrates excellence at all levels, from strategy to execution during the Gala Dinner on 29 October.
“Once the COVID-19 quick-and-urgent action stage is gone, businesses have to think through their current cybersecurity measures and how they have to be adapted or advanced because of the generalised implementation of remote work. This is why the search for innovative solutions addressing major cybersecurity challenges is even more important. We are looking forward to seeing what applicants have to offer,” says Koen Maris, Cybersecurity Leader at PwC Luxembourg
