The Group continues the expansion of its global network of SOCs to meet growing client demand
Paris, November 8, 2018 – Capgemini today announced it has launched a new Security Operations Center (SOC) in North America (Columbia, South-Carolina). The new SOC strengthens the Group’s capabilities in the region and globally to help clients drive innovation, transformation and operational efficiency across their organizations while protecting data, assets, identities, and overall customer trust.
“Companies must view cybersecurity not only as risk mitigation, but also as part of their broader growth strategy and a way to gain competitive advantage by becoming more data and customer-centric,” said Baru Rao, President Cloud Infrastructure Services North America at Capgemini. “Our progressive as-a-service delivery model provides flexibility for companies to scale cybersecurity services based on their needs, while also evolving to identify and pre-empt the most sophisticated attacks.”
Recent global cyberattacks have made organizations aware of the importance of integrating cybersecurity in their strategy. To meet their needs, Capgemini’s global network of connected SOCs provides a range of delivery options that can be tailored based on investment level and scale. Programs are created around sector-specific requirements and business, risk profiles, critical data assets, as well as current security strategies and levels of protection. Moreover, through the SOCs, Capgemini also helps clients to comply with regulatory changes relating to security, including Europe’s NIS Directive, the EU’s GDPR, and New York State Department of Financial Services regulations in the US.
“Our clients are able to make different uses of our Security Operations Centers depending on their business sector and needs. The centers learn from each other to develop best practices and boost their efficiency, providing clients with security that adapts to their business priorities and critical assets, allowing them to pursue wider digital possibilities and unlock business value,” explains Geert van der Linden, Cybersecurity Business Lead, Capgemini Group’s Cybersecurity Practice.
The new SOC in Columbia adds to Capgemini’s existing network, including the Southern Europe (Asturias, Spain) SOC that specializes in cloud services and industrial systems, as well as the opening of satellite SOCs in regions such as North America (Dallas), Europe (Utrecht). These SOCs support Capgemini’s delivery capabilities in Managed Security Services by offering both a local and regional presence, with a commitment to sharing knowledge and information on global cybersecurity trends, threats, and the most effective response. As with other SOCs in the global network, the new center in Columbia will work alongside a number of specialist partners under the global agreements that are in place with Capgemini.
