British Telecom (BT) Security’s ethical hacking team provides ‘penetration testing’ or ‘red team’ services, using the same tools and techniques as cybercriminals to attack organisations’ defences and identify where their vulnerabilities might be.
The launch of BT Security Advisory Services practice marks another step in the ongoing expansion of the company’s cyber security capabilities. The practice will offer strategic security guidance and solutions to organisations across the globe and will be led by Tris Morgan, with approximately 300 members of specialist staff based across the globe. They will be supported by the experience and capabilities of the wider BT Security team, which protects BT against 125,000 cyber-attacks per month.
Kevin Brown, Managing Director of BT Security said that the creation of the Advisory Services practice is the next step in BT Security’s strategy. “The strategy recognises that the optimal way to safeguard any organisation is through a continual and strategic evolution of their security posture. Tris brings a wealth of experience of providing advanced cyber solutions and guidance to both the public and private sector, making him ideally placed to provide the strategic direction that organisations are looking for.”
The services provided will be grouped into four key categories: cyber threat; zero trust; governance, risk and compliance; and cloud security. The Advisory Services practice will also offer solutions targeted at a number of industry and geography specific challenges, such as companies looking to securely expand into high-growth markets, or those looking to safely adopt increased automation and IoT usage. BT Security’s ethical hacking team will also be offering penetration testing services to customers who want to robustly stress-test their security defences.
