The next-generation Cyber Resilience Centre (CRC) provides a centralised model for the management of new core security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offerings and the continuous delivery of end-to-end security services for Fujitsu’s customers.
The company confirmed that the facility would be used to oversee managed and professional security services across the Oceania region, with services hosted on the Protected Cloud (ASD certified).
Located within Fujitsu’s Canberra office, the CRC will provide federal and state government customers with a dedicated, physical location for cyber security, an escalation point for security services, and the ability to operate at a classified level with complete managed detection and response capability.
The facility will grow to include a ‘virtual security operations centre’, which will service the entire Oceania region. This will complement the physical model and allow the facility’s services to be leveraged across the region where needed.
“Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand has invested in this next-generation facility to make sure we are well-positioned to protect our customers from ever-increasing cyber security threats. As Fujitsu helps customers on their digital transformation journey, security is an essential consideration in developing a foundation for growth,” Mike Foster, chief executive of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said.
“Fujitsu’s CRC teams will be on the frontline of defence for Fujitsu’s customers against cyber security threats. They will be monitoring the latest threats, responding to the requirements of new security standards, and formulating the best ways to deal with a wide range of issues as they arise.
“The CRC sits at the heart of Fujitsu’s security portfolio, providing support for security requirements across our offerings, including hybrid IT, cloud, digital workplace services and digital solutions. The integrated solution removes the clutter and complexity of managing multiple single security functions, providing additional value, increased efficiency, speed of detection and analysis, and quicker response to critical threat incidents.”
The CRC will deliver a comprehensive suite of managed cyber security services including:
- Threat analytics – collation and analysis of events and the protection, detection and remediation of security incidents as well as enabling retrospective analysis to support security investigations.
- Vulnerability management – probing of assets and configurations to identify weaknesses. This information can then be used to drive the remediation activity and enhance the protection of critical information assets.
- Threat intelligence – tracking external feeds to give early indications of potential targets.
- Threat response – proactively working with customers to plan how to react effectively in the event of a breach or potential breach.
The CRC certification and processes are based on industry standards including ISO27001 and comply with the Australian Signals Directorate’s Cyber Security Manual, privacy legislation and sector specific regulations, as well as Australian government standards.
