CSO Group Win NSW Government Contract With Macquarie Government


Australian owned and operated CSO Group is proud to
announce it has successfully secured a four-year $7 million
deal with the NSW Department of Communities and Justice
(DCJ). The deal includes a tightly integrated solution
delivering a fully managed Security Monitoring Service,
(Security Operations Centre (SOC) and Managed Security
Information and Event Management (SIEM)) that offers
real-time visibility, intelligence and
remediation.

Significantly, the platform is delivered
through a strategically sovereign architecture via the
‘Protected Cloud’ and Government certified environment
powered by Macquarie Government, a division of Macquarie
Telecom Group (ASX: MAQ).

This SOC and SIEM contract
is part of the Department’s Cyber Refresh Program and in
addition to the $16 million DCJ contract awarded to CSO
Group in late 2020.

The signing of this latest deal
has ignited a new and exciting partnership for CSO Group,
with the globally recognised and Australian-owned Macquarie
Telecom Group. These two Australian owned companies offer a
shared vision to help organisations demystify cyber security
and provide critical detection and response capabilities,
all through an enterprise grade Australian sovereign
solution.

CSO Group’s Integrated Security Monitoring
Service (ISMS) is accessible, customisable, flexible,
scalable and includes contextual use cases to ensure the
delivery of a purpose-built solution to their customers.
Taking the SOC-as-a-Service and SIEM-as-a-Service from
Macquarie Government and wrapping their own Managed Cyber
Assurance Service (M-CAS) delivers a seamless architecture
providing advanced insights and increased security
resilience and protection.

Leveraging strategic
partnerships with CrowdStrike and FireEye’s Mandiant to
provide leading intelligence and incident response only
further enhances the holistic outcomes of the
service.

“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.”
NSW DCJ CISO Matthew
Fedele-Sirotich said.

“We are very proud of the
work that our team has been providing our customers in
addition to the partnership and trust we have developed with
the NSW Department of Communities and Justice. As a
dedicated Cyber Security System Integrator, delivering
Integrated Security Outcomes to our customers is our primary
goal – enhanced through orchestrating the right components
of our strategic partners to meet the contextual
need.”

CSO Chief Executive Officer Michael
Simkovic said.

“The NSW Government is a leader in
cybersecurity, driving a new strategy that sets 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.
