London: Global advisory firm Deloitte has launched a new Cyber Intelligence Centre to help companies monitor, analyse and respond to cyber threats 24 hours a day.
- Centre brings together a range of services to monitor, analyse and respond to cyber threats;
- New capability uses business knowledge to determine the specific business risks and provide a tailored response.
The dedicated capability, which Deloitte thinks is the first of its kind, manages each aspect of companies' cyber security, using Deloitte's cross-industry knowledge to provide a tailored solution based on their business needs; its staff will be based in the UK in London and reading, and draw on expertise in Spain and the US.
Mike Maddison, head of security and resilience at Deloitte, said, "Cyber risk is a major concern for businesses of all sizes, across all sectors, and CISOs are under increasing pressure from boards to protect against evolving cyber threats. But the monitoring, analysis and response capabilities needed to keep businesses safe are often expensive overheads which can be difficult to manage.
"Since we can perform this service for several clients at once, we can also make it cost effective. Companies are under pressure to do more with less and the Cyber Intelligence Centre allows them to take advantage of Deloitte's scale. Deloitte is a global leader in security and risk consulting, employing some of the best people in the business. Cyber security is constantly evolving and this investment shows that we are committed to staying at the forefront in meeting new challenges to support our clients."
Deloitte's new Cyber Intelligence Centre is being launched following significant investment and development working closely with clients for over 18 months. It is part of a global investment in cyber security, which includes the Deloitte CyberSOC — a multi-service centre based in Spain providing global support to Deloitte clients — and the purchase of US firm Vigilant in May.
