PwC’s Kevin Campbell on Why Cybersecurity Responsibility Lays with the C-Suite First (Hypepotamus)


PwC’s 2018 Global State of Information Security survey showed that almost half — 48 percent — of companies surveyed don’t have an employee security awareness training in place, while 54 percent don’t have incident response plans in regards to cybersecurity threats.

“Thinking through how you’re dealing with stress testing in the incident response programs cannot be understated,” says Kevin Campbell, cybersecurity lead for PwC’s Southeast region. With 25 years of experience in the fiber privacy and cybersecurity space, Campbell supports the cybersecurity and privacy needs of PwC across the region. “It amazes me that companies don’t have a disaster recovery plan or incident response plan in place, or there’s something that was developed years ago and has not been actively updated, and even more so that they haven’t been tested.”
