Cyber Security, Data Privacy and Digital Identity

The PwC Cyber Security Team in Romania relies on experts with many years of experience in the role of head of IT security or key specialists in Romania as well as experienced security auditors who have carried out a large number of consulting or assurance projects in the field of security as well as implemented security solutions.

We work closely with our CEE teams in Poland, Czech and Russia, while globally we rely on one of the largest practices of security in the world, employing over 3,500 highly qualified professionals in the field of information security, with over 1,200 in Europe.

We view cyber security through a series of interconnected lenses. This rounded approach is designed to provide you with confidence: in your people, technology and connections, how you manage risk, set priorities and respond to an incident or during a crisis.

Our capabilities are focused on the Cyber Security domains included in the PwC Cyber Security framework. Each domain is comprised of capabilities that are used in the way we deliver our assignments.
