Orange Cyberdefense chosen by CERT NZ

Thursday, 12 April, 2018


CERT NZ has selected Orange Business Services to help manage cybersecurity risks.

Cyber attacks continue to affect organisations around the world, with the World Economic Forum’s ‘The Global Risks Report 2018’ suggesting that the cost of cybercrime to businesses over the next five years could reach US$8 trillion.

Created in April 2017, CERT NZ received over 750 cybersecurity incident reports affecting New Zealanders during the first six months of operation. These incidents resulted in almost NZ$2 million of financial loss.

Orange Cyberdefense, the Orange entity specialising in cybersecurity with more than 1200 security experts worldwide, was chosen by CERT NZ to collaborate in the sharing of threat intelligence. CERT NZ can aggregate and analyse threat and vulnerability data from Orange with other complementary feeds.

In turn, CERT NZ will advise Orange of threats and vulnerabilities that they encounter in the cybersecurity landscape so Orange can integrate these into its threat intelligence feeds and analysis tools.

“A key priority of Orange has always been to help businesses manage cyber risks proactively,” said Kevin Griffen, MD, Australasia, Orange Business Services.

“This is especially so in today’s ever-evolving threat landscape. Leveraging our expertise at Orange Cyberdefense, our work with CERT NZ underscores our commitment to build a trusted and resilient cyber environment for both consumers and businesses.”
