SOC.OS has come a long way in just over a year, since being spun out of BAE Systems Applied Intelligence in mid-2020. Our platform has been a hit with security operations (SecOps) teams, enabling them to work more productively, and keep their organisations safer from threats. But there’s always more to do and further to go.
That’s why we are delighted to be joining two important initiatives: the Mayor of London’s International Business Programme and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC)’s Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP).
Joining Cohort 20
The Mayor’s International Business Programme is designed to help participating companies achieve their global growth ambitions through access to other businesses, mentors, partners and international trade missions. Joining the programme will enable SOC.OS to learn from business leaders and entrepreneurs, make exclusive connections to top corporates in London and abroad, join high profile trade missions, and even tap live business opportunities in China, India and North America.
Companies join the programme in cohorts, so they can collaborate and share knowledge with others in the sector. We’re looking forward to the new opportunities this will afford us to share our unique capabilities with more global organisations.
Sharing industry knowledge
The CiSP programme was first set up in 2013 to provide a safe and confidential environment where organisations can share sensitive threat information. The NCSC recently announced a push to refresh content and enhance trust on the platform. At the moment, commercial sensitivities and concerns over who can view data too often get in the way of information sharing efforts like this. Yet no such barriers exist in the cybercrime underground.
At SOC.OS we’re hoping that our membership of the CiSP programme will help us to share our own expertise and threat intelligence for the benefit of others. And in return, we may be able to enhance our service to customers by driving greater visibility into the threat landscape.
Enhancing industry information sharing will be absolutely critical if we are to fulfil the government’s aim of making the UK the safest place in the world to live and work online. In the meantime, we’re always on the lookout for new ways to grow as a business and add value for our customers.
