Dimension Data New Zealand strengthens cybersecurity practice
Posted on 5-Dec-2017 20:27 | Tags Filed under: News



Dimension Data New Zealand has strengthened its Cybersecurity Practice in response to the growing demand from clients and the ever-changing nature of cybersecurity threats.

 

The Cybersecurity Practice combines Dimension Data’s Consulting, Technical and Managed Security Services, as well as its ethical hacking and forensic security business, Security-Assesment.com. This industry-leading amalgamation delivers true end-to-end Cybersecurity capability for its clients.

 

“Cybersecurity is no longer solely an IT issue’’ says Dimension Data Chief Executive, Wayne Yarr. Cybersecurity resilience and risk management is increasingly becoming a CEO and boardroom priority. Our clients demand more than just an IT technology solution, they want to work with experts who not only understand their business but know how to execute and implement Cybersecurity strategies – across policy, process and technology.

 

“Our Cybersecurity team of experts is made up of business consultants, technology architects, IT forensic specialists and testers who are able to engage at every level across the business. With local capability backed with the power of NTT Security from our parent company, Dimension Data’s Cybersecurity practice is the most comprehensive in New Zealand,” says Yarr.

 

“Today’s Cybersecurity challenge is as much about managing a security incident as it is about preventing one,” says Dimension Data Head of Cybersecurity Practice Matthew, Lord. “We know from CERT NZ that ransomware is a huge issue, it accounts for 13% of all reported incidents with 25% of the incidents resulting in financial loss. Most businesses will have a ransomware infection this year.

 

“People and processes are just as important as technology,” says Lord who represents Dimension Data on the New Zealand Government’s Cybersecurity Task Force and is a past ANZ co-chair of the International Information Security Forum. “We know these are often our weakest links, with CERT NZ finding 15% of all security incidents relate to unauthorised access. Clients need a full-service solution to ensure they are aware of all the potential risks and have the right technology, people and processes in place.”

 

In the case of an incident, the global capabilities of NTT Security will give Dimension Data the ability to reach into the rich database of security incident data that will help our clients recover.

 

“Cybersecurity is a new and scary issue for many of our clients. They need to know they are working with a partner that understands the ever-changing landscape, can adapt to new threats and implement the latest technologies. As an independent integrator we can advise on the best solutions for them,” says Lord.

 

“We are looking forward to working strategically with our clients, helping them transform the way they approach Cybersecurity to ensure they are protected and prepared.”
