Ministry of Defence in the Caribbean turns to Cytek Security for its cybersecurity operations centre

Cytek Security, a leading provider of state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions, has been selected to design and build a distributed Security Operations Centre (SOC) for a national Ministry of Defence, including all arms of its defence forces.

Cytek will work with a leading Ministry of Defence in the Caribbean region, to evaluate its cybersecurity risk landscape, and design and implement a distributed SOC. The SOC will perform proactive threat detection, provide situational awareness and information gathering, enhance cyber command and control, and inform and alert stakeholders.

Maintaining a safe security posture requires a proactive approach to threat detection that relies on cutting edge threat intelligence and cybersecurity tools. Cytek will develop and implement a distributed SOC and develop the following capabilities:

  • Continuous surveillance monitoring and analysis of network and system activities.
  • Active scanning to identify vulnerabilities and potential threats.
  • Threat intelligence including collecting, analysing and sharing relevant intelligence for proactive threat detection and prevention.

As the SOC is intended to serve several different defence bodies, Cytek will ensure the integration and efficient flow of information, including infrastructure integration and the definition of processes and policies for collaboration and information sharing.

Cytek will also support the Ministry of Defence in developing self-sustained cyber awareness and knowledge, using proven methodologies for building organisation-wide cyber-DNA.

“Cybersecurity attacks are growing both in numbers and level of sophistication,” according to Michael Arov, EVP, Cyber Solutions and Strategy, Cytek. “High-profile organisations need to be especially vigilant as security breaches can impact human lives. We are proud to have been selected for this strategic project based on our experience with national-level and highly classified cyber defence projects to help the Ministry of Defence protect its organisation and citizens.”
