April 20, 2023

Press Release, Luxembourg, 20 April 2023

PwC Luxembourg is happy to present the agenda of this year’s PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Day, taking place 8 June 2023 at PwC’s Luxembourg’s Crystal Park premises.  The agenda of the day will include many presentations as well as interactive workshops sessions. Furthermore, the top five innovative solutions selected for this year’s Cybersecurity & Privacy Solution of the Year Award will compete during the Pitching Contest.  


The mission of the PwC Cybersecurity and Privacy Day is to help all businesses stay as secure as possible in a complex and dynamic digital society.

This year’s main theme will be: Leadership. Cyber increased in the priority list of top management and at the board of directors. Requiring cyber leaders to shift to a business aligned security combined with a risk based approach. But many of the management and/or board of director meetings go without cyber expertise being present. Time has come to get your cyber leader on board in your board.

Cybersecurity remains one of the key levers that CEOs can draw on to protect their organisation from evolving risk. In fact, in PwC’s 26th Annual Global CEO Survey – Winning’s today’s race while running tomorrow’s – the results showed that 48% of global CEOs say they are increasing investment in cybersecurity or data privacy in response to rising geopolitical conflict. But to make this investment effective, leadership is crucial when addressing the myriad of growing cybersecurity challenges, as it requires a coordinated effort across different teams and departments.

To overcome the leadership problematic between a CEO and a CISO, it’s important for both leaders to establish trust, foster open communication, and work collaboratively to develop and implement a cohesive cybersecurity strategy that aligns with the company’s overall business goals. Our PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Day has been developed with both roles in mind, but also, how they can best collaborate together.

Koen Maris, Advisory Partner and Cybersecurity Leader PwC Luxembourg, says:

“This year’s event looks set to be even more relevant than ever. As reflected in our 26th annual CEO Survey- Luxembourg Cut, unsurprisingly, and in tandem with their global counterparts, cyber threats still loom large on CEOs’ minds with approx 30% of Luxembourg CEOs considering cyber risks as a key threat for the next year and the next 5 years respectively – above the respective global averages. But developing and executing a winning cybersecurity strategy not only requires leadership buy-in but the commitment of CEOs and CISOs to communicate well, to stay aware and up-to-date on current trends, and to allocate enough resources to their teams for protection – given the rising frequency of attacks and the extent of financial and reputational damage that a company can suffer.

We have made sure we have a rich agenda for this year’s event that answers to this call. As always, one of the most exciting parts of our PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Day is the Pitching Competition, and what I can say is that this year we have a very diverse selection of solutions presented from four different countries! It all looks set to be a great event and I hope to see you there.”
