CyberCX and Water Corporation WA embark on 3-year managed services and security operations centre partnership
Perth, 14 September 2022
CyberCX, Australia and New Zealand’s leading cyber security services provider, has today announced it has won a three-year contract to deliver a Security Operations Centre (SOC) and Cyber Managed Services (CMS) for the Water Corporation in Western Australia.
Water Corporation is Western Australia’s principal supplier of water, wastewater and drainage services, servicing more than two million Australians. This contract continues Water Corporation’s program to enhance its cyber security capability and protect WA’s critical infrastructure.
CyberCX will deliver the SOC services from its purpose-built facility in Perth. CyberCX’s capability, scale and local focus were key differentiators, along with demonstrated experience in the critical infrastructure and utility sector in Western Australia and nationally.
The CMS capability will support Water Corporation’s cyber security technology platform, including endpoint, network and cloud based controls. Water Corporation recognised CyberCX’s ability to provide a cohesive “detect and respond” capability across both the SOC and CMS elements of the contract.
John Paitaridis, CyberCX CEO, said “CyberCX is committed to securing our communities and pleased to be the cyber security partner of choice for Water Corporation.
“We’ve invested in building a world class SOC capability in Western Australia and I am delighted we are able to deliver this important capability to our critical infrastructure, resources, commercial and government customers in WA.”
Steve Schupp, Executive Director, CyberCX, said “I am excited to work with Water Corporation as CyberCX’s WA presence expands to over 120 cyber security professionals delivering services to Western Australian organisations.”
“Water Corporation’s decision to award this contract to a local service provider supports cyber security jobs for Western Australians. Both our organisations are committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion in our industry, and this partnership creates positive outcomes for the Western Australian community.”
