“The era where management considers that their organisations are not at stake due to the preventative controls they have put in place is over. Many of these controls run within existing IT departments that never received the right training to provide adequate and timely response during an incident. The more we become digitally dependent, and with the increase of connectivity regardless of the nature of the organisation or type of industry, the bigger the attack surface becomes. Attacks increase in volume and complexity making it dif icult to stop them. With the integration of IoT and cloud adoption in our daily and professional lives it is crucial we do not repeat the errors from previous era. This is precisely why we made an extra effort this year to extend the time and range for submissions for the Pitching Competition 2019 looking to attract companies with unique solutions that address major cybersecurity concerns in the field of fraud & cybersecurity investigation or AI for cybersecurity using the latest technologies. We are very happy with the number and quality of the companies that submitted this year. From these, we have selected five finalists who will pitch live at our Cybersecurity Day,” says Koen Maris, Director and Cybersecurity Leader at PwC Luxembourg.
This year, the five finalists are:
