CTM to launch cybersecurity operation centre

Local telecom group CTM has announced a partnership with IT group Automated Systems Holdings Limited to launch a security operation centre set to assist local companies in complying with the new Cybersecurity Law requirements for monitoring and predictions.

Last year, local authorities enacted the city’s first Cybersecurity Law, which establishes that private and public companies and entities operating in crucial sectors – including internet, media and communication operators, water and energy supply, banking, financial systems and gaming – would be mandated to enforce cybersecurity measures.

The security operation center will be located within the CTM building in Taipa and will be supported by CTM’s data center, with a dual-technology platform supporting both Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), and situational awareness of cybersecurity.

‘CTM is committed to promoting the construction and development of ‘Digital Macau’ […] The co-launch of SOC2 with Automated has enriched various aspects of our security services. Through the one-stop comprehensive transformation solution, covering infrastructure, network, and security, CTM will help enterprises develop their business at one go,’ CTM Vice President for Commercial, Ebel Cham, indicated in the announcement.

The project will be conducted in partnership with Automated, a subsidiary of the ASL Group, an IT company based in Hong Kong and Macau focused on integrated managed services, industry-specific solutions and network security services.

‘Macau is one of the key markets for Automated in the Asia-Pacific region. […] The cooperation with CTM, a leader in Macau telecommunications industry, to jointly establish the SOC, will fully demonstrate our strong synergies and meet the pressing needs of Macau customers in compliance with cybersecurity, especially Macau Cybersecurity Law,’ the General Manager of CSA Automated (Macau) Limited, Teresa Lau, stated in the announcement.
