Deloitte, HGC Group to provide cyber protection to HK companies

The partnership will offer prediction and prevention, detection, protection, and response to HK companies against cyber risks.

Deloitte Cyber and Macroview Telecom, the CyberSecurity and digital transformation solution arm of HGC, will provide “a holistic and comprehensive CyberSecurity portfolio, using latest technology, best practice, and certified and skilled resources to protect Hong Kong companies from the CyberSecurity risks.”

The partnership will provide security protection by different stages including prediction and prevention, detection, protection, and response.

A study Deloitte conducted found that more than half a million people globally were affected by breaches wherein personal data of videoconferencing users was stolen and sold on the dark web, according to the joint statement.

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," Miro Pihkanen, a partner at Cyber Risk Services at Deloitte China, said.

HGC CEO Andrew Kwok said the partnership will offer a “360-degree view” of cybersecurity services in all industry segments to protect their customers’ digital assets and support their operations.
