Our CSFCs enable this by defending organizations’ digital assets and the Gothenburg Center is perfectly placed to effectively meet most complex needs of our global customers.”
Apart from monitoring, alerting, resolving and remediates incidents, HCL’s CSFC also helps European organizations comply with local data sovereignty regulations.
This CSFC monitors IT, Internet of Things, Industrial Internet of Things and factory operational technology environments. The CSFC will also be armed with Security Orchestration and Automation Platform, providing high-quality cyber defense to customers.
“It’s fantastic to see a leading global technology company like HCL choosing our city as the ideal home for its top cybersecurity talent,” said Patrik Andersson, CEO, Business Region Göteborg. “HCL’s commitment to creating more career opportunities and attracting even more skilled workers from other countries will be a major benefit to the local business community.”
“A strong track record of providing cybersecurity, governance, risk and compliance services as HCL does is key to creating trust in times of digital servitization,” said Jan Horsager, Research Director at IDC Nordic. “It’s positive to see HCL strengthening its offering by adding regional coverage from Europe as well as expanding security capabilities and technology innovation.”
