Sopra Steria launches its Asian Cyber Security Centre (CSC) in Singapore

Singapore, 25 June 2015 – Alongside this launch, Sopra Steria announces the expansion of its Asian headquarters in Singapore.

Sopra Steria, European leader in digital transformation, has today officially launched its Singapore Cyber Security Center (CSC) in conjunction with the expansion of its Asian Headquarter at Fusionopolis.

In meeting the increased demand in Asia for sophisticated and cutting-edge IT services, the expansion with its growing team enables Sopra Steria Asia to support its operations with more services, such as core banking software in addition to its proven solutions for transport and utilities sectors. The office, with its strategic location in Singapore as a burgeoning cyber security hub, would also house the new generation CSC which will support organisations to define and enhance their cyber security strategy and instill digital trust to protect their sensitive information and accelerate their digital development.

The CSC will leverage on Sopra Steria’s well-recognised RightSecurity offering to provide entire security life cycle services, ranging from consulting, risk identification, security solution integration, to operation, real-time monitoring and advance threat prevention. Through a global delivery model supported by Sopra Steria’s 24/7 services and a CSC network of over 700 skilled security experts, the centre aims to enable local agencies, multi-national companies and small medium enterprises with the same level of quality services, and across different time zones and geographical areas.

Congratulating Sopra Steria on its establishment of the new CSC, Mr Kiren Kumar, Director of Infocomm and Media, Singapore Economic Development Board said, “The introduction of the Sopra Steria Cyber Security Centre (CSC) is aligned with our vision to develop Singapore as Asia’s leading safety and security solutions hub. Sopra Steria is also an important partner for both innovation and talent development in the cyber security field as they equip Singaporeans with the relevant knowledge and exposure to tackle sophisticated cyber-attacks from the region.”

Sopra Steria and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) will jointly establish a joint R&D laboratory to collaborate on the development and testing of new security technologies for the infocomm technology sector.

“The expansion of our Asian office is an important step for Sopra Steria Asia as we move towards our goal to provide a full range of IT solutions to our clients in Singapore and in the rest of Asia. Cyber security is an absolute priority to our clients in the digital world. We are happy that we are now able to support them in this field by placing them, their markets, their stakeholders and their regulatory context at the heart of our approach.” says Dr Vera Jin, Sopra Steria Asia CEO.
