Do you want to pitch your solution in front of more than 200 people including CISOs, DPOs, CIOs, CROs and VCs of major companies from Luxembourg and abroad?

As always, one of the most exciting aspects of the PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Days is the Pitching competition, which has grown in size and stature over the years. Applications for this year are open as of today. What is PwC looking for? The top five innovative solutions addressing major cybersecurity or privacy challenges!

Koen Maris, Cybersecurity Leader, PwC Luxembourg says: “One only has to pick up any paper or go online to see that the current wave of attacks is increasingly making companies victims, citizens casualties and holding privacy hostage. Ransomware, cyberattacks, supply-chain attacks and phishing – these are just some of the security and privacy challenges that need to be addressed. This year we are really looking for well considered solutions as we move further into a world of remote work and inter connectivity where privacy has become a commodity, hackers are growing bolder in their hunt for unauthorised access and individuals and companies need to collect, store and share their data in a more intelligent way.”
