Sydney-based managed information security services provider, Secure Logic, has grand plans in store in the next 12 months.
Secure Logic CEO, Santosh Devaraj, said he was keen to strengthen its relationship with local government, take what it has achieved in the local market into Asia as well as focus on collaboration and acquisition opportunities. The services provider already has offices in Singapore, China and Malaysia, with more than 70 staff.
“The core essence of our business is collaboration and we’re looking at what makes sense to build the business stronger. Information security has become a very important point for a customer’s transition to the Cloud,” he said. “In the next 12 months, we want to strengthen our relationship with local government as well as be more agile to fit all customer needs and take what we’ve done here into Asia.”
Previously Secure Logic has acquired companies such as Contingency Asia and Plush Hosting, which adds to the fundamentals of information security and providing services around and beyond that too, Devaraj said. It has an established a security as a service arm, 3Si, which focuses on payment solutions and refining aspects of governance, risk and compliance.
“Knowledge transfer is important. It’s not just about selling a product, it’s about how we can reach awareness and maturity of information security,” he said.
It is also working on key projects with Cyber Security Malaysia and working in Indonesia on a data security program with merchants and card regulators to raise awareness around secure payments and how to recognise credit card fraud, what to do and how to handle cards.
“Why can’t we educate merchants before they become a merchant around awareness of payment security and being compliant,” he said.
It has also developed a comprehensive SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system, which is an assessment framework that assists in identifying, mitigating and managing risks.
“SCADA is becoming very important in the future with cyber warfare,” he said. “The majority of security threats are more towards critical infrastructure as opposed to just defacing websites, so a lot of companies are looking for critical support.”
