The professional services firm will officially announce the winner of the Cybersecurity Solution of the Year Award during its 2021 Cybersecurity & Privacy Days.
On the 20, 21, 27 and 28 October, PwC Luxembourg is hosting its 2021 Cybersecurity & Privacy Days. The event, which traditionally focuses on the latest international trends in Ccybersecurity, will be also dedicated to privacy issues.
Digital Information: “A Lifeblood”
“This year, we have officially added Privacy to the Cybersecurity Days because companies should focus on both cybersecurity and privacy to achieve their goals,” Koen Maris, Advisory Partner and Cyber Security Leader of PwC Luxembourg, explains.
“As companies increasingly pivot toward a digital business model, exponentially more data is generated and shared among organizations, partners and customers. This digital information has become the lifeblood of the interconnected business ecosystem and is increasingly valuable to organizations – and to skilled threat actors”.
The four-day program will include two virtual sessions dedicated to Data Protection Officers (“PwC DPO Meet Up”, on 20 October) and to the local Cybersecurity community (“PwC Cybersecurity Community Call”, on 21 October).
On 27 October a “CEO Corner” session will be held in-person, followed by a CISO & DPO Corner event (in-person & virtual) on 28 October.
The guest-speaker panel includes Tine A. Larsen (Chair, (Commission Nationale pour la Protection des Données, CNPD), Christina Lekati (Social Engineering Trainer & Consultant, Cyber Risk GmbH, Paul de Hert (Full professor Vrije Universiteit Brussels & Associated Professor Tilburg University) and Paul Oor (Security and Data Protection Consultant, Shared Experiences).
