What will we discuss?Decades after emerging from under IT’s wing, the cybersecurity profession has matured. As we emerge from the pandemic, cyber stands at a critical, pivotal, exciting time for the industry and the organisations and people it serves. This is evidenced by our latest Global Digital Trust Insights 2021.
Our findings from the survey of 3,249 businesses and technology executives around the world tell us what’s changing and what’s next in cybersecurity. Key findings include:
- 50% of say that they bake cybersecurity and privacy into every business decision.
- 55% of business and IT leaders report increasing cyber budgets in 2021.
- 56% rated a ransomware attack as likely or very likely over the next year, and 58% said the consequences would be negative.
- 51% businesses are making plans to increase their cybersecurity headcount in the next 12 months.
What does this mean for Central and Eastern Europe?
COVID-19 accelerated the adoption of cyber security solutions and forced companies to take a bolder approach. Often faced with older infrastructure and scepticism, we are seeing new rapid acceleration of cybersecurity solutions in our region as a result of the pandemic.
Our panel of PwC experts and special guests will discuss the future of cybersecurity in CEE, interpret the survey results for our region, and share our own stories of structuring cyber practices.
