ST Engineering’s Electronics sector launched a first-of-its kind Cybersecurity Operation Centre As-A-Platform (SOCaaP) that delivers customised security operations centre (SOC) solutions that will result in greater operational efficiency and significant cost savings for customers’ digital assets.
The SOCaaP, which provides a complete suite of capabilities to protect, detect, respond and recover from cyberattacks, includes advanced, cutting-edge technologies such as a new age Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Advanced Analytics Engine. These capabilities provide automated, real-time analysis of security alerts within an organisation’s network with a higher degree of accuracy, compared to existing SIEM.
Expands Foray into Myanmar
The Electronics sector entered into a collaboration with Myanmar partner, Alliance Urban Transports (AUT) to provide cybersecurity services and training for Myanmar’s government, financial services and insurance sectors.
ST Engineering and AUT will jointly operate an SOC in Yangon. Through SOCaaP, the setup of this SOC will be shortened to just under four months, from the usual over 12-month lead time required for such implementation. The partners will also operate a cybersecurity training centre in Yangon to help strengthen Myanmar’s national cybersecurity resilience and boost its cyberthreat detection and response capabilities.
The agreement was signed by Mr Lau Thiam Beng, President of Cybersecurity Systems Group, ST Engineering, and Mr U Kyaw Win, Chairman of AUT. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Mr Ravinder Singh, President of Electronics, ST Engineering, Mr U Thar Oo, Deputy Minister for Transport and Communications, Myanmar, and Dr Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State for Ministry of Communications and Information.
To date, ST Engineering has delivered more than 15 SOCs for government agencies and commercial enterprises internationally, helping them maintain a secure environment while ensuring continuity of business operations.
Forerunner in Cybersecurity Certification under Common Criteria
In another development, the sector has further solidified its position as an internationally recognised cybersecurity solutions provider when eight of the sector’s cybersecurity products received the Singapore Common Criteria Scheme (SCCS) certification, administered by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA). These products are the NetCrypt Family Series, DiskCrypt M100 (Enterprise) and DigiSAFE Data Diode product lines. The Common Criteria (CC) certification ensures that cybersecurity products and solutions conform to strict guidelines and is the de facto standard for cybersecurity product certification. CC certificates are mutually recognised by 31 nations which signed the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA).
