Koen Maris, Cybersecurity Leader, PwC Luxembourg says: “We live in a world that is ever more connected, where the physical is moving so close to the digital  soon it may be hard to tell them apart. Think about the range of it- from  3-D, sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), machines, factory processes, places and people. This convergence brings with it a whole new wave of opportunities, but it also poses certain risks.  We also live in a world where we are more vulnerable, due to the fact that critical infrastructure operations that used to stand alone now link to the internet, which we know can be breached, and to a universe of data that is often sensitive. And all this in light of the current geopolitical context. This is why this year we chose the timely topic of Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) and can’t think of a better way to progress in this area than converging ourselves for a full day of activities. Join us for a fascinating day of discussions on this topic so we can debate and learn together how to better protect, prepare for and respond to threats and incidents involving critical infrastructure ecosystems.”


About the PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Day

Cybersecurity and the global health situation are top of CEOs’ minds for 2022, according to the latest PwC Global CEO Survey. Cyber risks moved up the threat list and is now the highest concern among CEOs.

In the meantime, CISOs are facing an unlimited number of various attacks and risks every day. DPOs see their mission evolve to ensure data security and privacy are respected, in a complex environment.

The PwC Cybersecurity and Privacy Day mission is to help CISOs, DPOs and CEOs ensure they keep their organisation secure in a digital society.
