Deloitte Cyber partners with HGC Group to protect Hong Kong Companies from Cyber Risks under Rapid Digitization

Deloitte Cyber has partnered up with HGC Group to provide a holistic solution to protect Hong Kong companies from cyber risks during the digital era.

This partnership will provide adaptive security protection by different stages, which includes predict & prevent, detect, protect, and response, and enhance the CyberSecurity capabilities for corporations, as Deloitte Cyber is a leader in various worldwide CyberSecurity research for its Global Advisory network and has expertise in compliance and data protection.

Deloitte Cyber has partnered with HGC Group to assist businesses in combating cyberattacks, utilizing HGC Group’s full-service telecommunications, data centre services, ICT solutions, and broadband services for local, international, corporate, and mass markets.

“The cyber threat has become a board-level risk in today’s business world. If you’re operating online, you’re at risk. An attack can lead to financial and reputational damage, both of which can be irreparable. A reactive response is no longer good enough, prevention measures must be put in place well in advance and proactive detection of threats is a must,” said Mr. Miro Pihkanen, Partner, Deloitte Cyber.

“HGC Group is continuously expanding the digital transformation to local and international markets, cybersecurity is one of the most prominent consideration during this digital journey. Riding on our full-fledged digital infrastructure, we’ll continue to invest millions of US dollars in different phases to further enhance our capabilities in cybersecurity. The partnership between HGC Group’s Macroview and Deloitte can offer a 360-degree view of cybersecurity services across all industry segments to protect our customers’ digital assets, and support them in operating an anti-risk environment while developing their business,” said Mr. Andrew Kwok, CEO of HGC.

“With our proven record of successful cases in the industry, Macroview has been well recognized as a trustful Digital Transformation Partner to our customers for many years. With our self-owned Security Operation Centre (A.SOC) in operations for several years serving different major financial and monetary organizations, we’ll continue to expand our cybersecurity solution in different sector,” said Mr. Victor Share, CEO of Macroview Telecom, a HGC Group Company.
