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. Startups will battle it out to win The Cybersecurity Solution of the Year Award, which also comes with a host of opportunities such as coaching and media exposure.

In addition, the startup pitching will get their startup idea in front of more than 200 people including CISOs, DPOs, CIOs, CROs and VCs of major companies from Luxembourg and abroad.

Here are some of the benefits of taking part:

  • Pitch your solution and gain credibility with international investors and corporate stakeholders
  • Increase your visibility through international media exposure
  • Benefit from professional coaching by the PwC team
  • Be part of a well-known European-level event in Cybersecurity & Privacy (Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg 2021)

The Cybersecurity Solution of the Year Award will be decided by the Jury, and awarded to the candidate that demonstrates excellence at all levels, from strategy to execution during the Gala Dinner on 28 October.

Koen Maris, Cybersecurity Leader, PwC Luxembourg says about the event: “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.”
