IT giant SCC has opened an advanced security operations centre (SOC) at its international headquarters in Birmingham as part of the growth of its cyber division. 

In the past 12 months, SCC has made a multimillion-pound investment in creating a dedicated cyber division, building on its previous capability within its data centre operation, including more than 30 jobs across operations, AI, automation, technical architecture, product development and sales.

The new SOC, accredited by CREST, provides a central base in the UK cyber operations team. It aims to further enhance SCC’s ability to monitor, prevent, detect, investigate and respond to global cyber threats. 

Steve Harrison, cyber operations director at SCC, said: “Our customers rely on SCC’s specialist cyber expertise to ensure they can focus on running their businesses safely, against a backdrop of sophisticated and ever-increasing cyber threats. Our investment in the Cyber division underlines our commitment to our customers.

“The opening of our new SOC is the latest milestone on our growth journey, with plans to keep adding services and people to the cyber team. This in turn will keep creating new opportunities for our customers to stay better protected from unprecedented challenges in cyber security.”

Rowland Johnson, CREST president, added: “SCC’s SOC accreditation puts the company in a strong position to meet the growing demand for high-quality, trusted managed SOC services.

“An effective SOC plays a critical role in underpinning incident detection and response capabilities in the face of increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks, and this provides assurance for buyers that the company consistently delivers the highest standard professional security services standards.”
