Macquarie Government’s partnership with CSO group to deliver SOC and SIEM.

We are excited to announce that Macquarie Government has partnered with CSO group to deliver a fully managed Security Monitoring Service, Security Operations Centre (SOC) and Managed Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to NSW Department of Communities and Justice as part of the Department’s Cyber Refresh Program

CSO group are taking Macquarie’s SOCaaS and SIEMaaS products and wrapping their own Managed Cyber Assurance Service (M-CAS) delivers a seamless architecture providing advanced insights and increased security resilience and protection.

This contract is just the first stage of what both Macquarie Government and CSO Group plan to be a strong partnership, offering a shared vision to help organisations demystify cyber security and provide critical detection and response capabilities, all through a sovereign Australian, enterprise grade solution.

In announcing the contract, NSW DCJ CISO Matthew Fedele-Sirotich said “Working with enterprise-grade Australian cyber security companies that house the data in a protected Australian data centre is a highly valuable requirement. Furthermore, the services offered enables our internal teams to conduct the in-depth threat hunts to continuously validate the secure nature of our environment. All the while knowing our service partner is acting as our overwatch, ensuring we identify and respond to malicious behaviours and events.”

Focusing on cybersecurity and sovereign standards.

“The NSW Government is a leader in cybersecurity, driving a new strategy that sets appropriate standards and regulatory requirements within the state, and demonstrates best practice in its own cyber maturity. The combination of CSO Group’s consultative-led model and Macquarie’s heritage and experience across all levels of government – particularly over 42 per cent of Federal Government agencies – will help to realise this strategy while ensuring a sovereign data-secure environment. We look forward to working with the Department of Communities and Justice and CSO Group.,” Macquarie Government Managing Director Aidan Tudehope said.
