About the Cybersecurity Day 2019
For the fourth time in Luxembourg, the PwC Luxembourg Cybersecurity Day will bring together influential players from the cyber-industry. PwC Luxembourg has organised this year’s event into three distinct parts. The morning will be dedicated to CISOs with technical updates and cybersecurity solutions leaving the afternoon with dedicated sessions for our CISOs, DPOs and CEOs.
Participants will enjoy distinguished speakers from all over the world, representing a rich panel of thought leaders but with varying topics that have been picked according to our audience’s roles and interests and therefore resulting in three unique and tailor-made agendas. ( check on website ).
The PwC Luxembourg Cybersecurity Day for CISOs —will offer security experts the chance to gain technical updates, meet five promising cybersecurity solutions and attend interactive workshops.
How to grow as a cyber leader, increase your cybersecurity effectiveness, SWIFT Customer Security Programme, what your data tells about you, manage your third- party providers or how to react in case of a crisis are some of the key topics covered by the PwC Cybersecurity Day this year.
The PwC Luxembourg Cybersecurity Day – CEO Ticket has been specifically tailored to provide CEOs, during one afternoon, an in-depth understanding on strategic challenges around cybersecurity. It will be the occasion to focus on trends and on how to anticipate new information security and privacy challenges, followed by a keynote that will explain how to increase our influence over others and go through the role of an effective cyber leader to equip you in your daily work. Finally, because CEOs work closely with their cybersecurity leader, they will join the CISOs session to experience a real Hacking Experience together.
The PwC Luxembourg Cybersecurity Day – Privacy Corner will offer DPOs or persons in charge of Data Privacy the chance to gain technical updates and attend interactive workshops. We will welcome the CNPD to get feedback on CNPD governance investigation, and give our invitees the possibility to assist in sessions on various topics like CARPA, the roles and challenges of a global DPO, an introduction of the IAPP in Luxembourg, the challenge of data leak versus data breach and more. The Privacy professor, Rebecca Herold will expose her vision on how to prepare ourselves for privacy risk evolution. For all our invitees, at the end of the day, the best-selling author, and 21-year cyber security veteran Jane Frankland will help the audience to understand how cross-industry collaboration, and embracing diversity are the keys to building strong, secure and stable connected platforms, able to run both today’s and tomorrow’s services.

“ 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 difficult 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.
