USE THIS ONEAustralia’s CyberCX said it has launched its Queensland operations in Brisbane with plans for significant growth including an expanded security operations network and recruitment drive. CyberCX recently acquired and integrated two of Queensland’s cyber companies, Alcorn Group and Yell IT, and has committed significant investment in local talent and technology to enhance the full spectrum of cyber security services to the Queensland’s economy.

Through close working relationships with the University of Queensland and QUT and collaboration with the fast-growing Queensland cyber security ecosystem, CyberCX plans to grow its Queensland workforce from over 120 cyber security professionals today to around 200 in the next 18 months. This investment in jobs will be supported by a significant capital investment in an expanded Security Operations Centre (SOC), which will play a pivotal role in establishing Australia’s largest federated network of SOC capability spanning five facilities across the country. It will also include a comprehensive digital forensics and incident response service.

CyberCX will also deliver a local branch of a national CyberCX Academy to Queensland, with a commitment to serving the cyber skills shortage in the region and ensuring the government, financial services, education and other key sectors are appropriately skilled to combat sophisticated and motivated cyber threats.

CyberCX CEO John Paitaridis emphasised the importance of Queensland in CyberCX’s national and international strategy. “Queensland is a key market focus for CyberCX. We are the country’s largest, sovereign cyber security player and we are passionate about protecting the communities we serve. CyberCX is well placed to deliver mission critical cyber security services to Queensland businesses and government leveraging our 600 plus cyber security specialists nationally.”
