- BT Global launched Security Advisory Services in what looked a refocusing of its cybersecurity efforts.
BT Global launched Security Advisory Services in what looked like an update to its cybersecurity efforts. The new practice, which BT flagged as part of an “ongoing expansion” of its cybersecurity capabilities, will offer “strategic security guidance and solutions to organisations across the globe”. The new initiative is being led by Tristan Morgan, who seems to be a rising cybersecurity star at BT. In late‑2019, Morgan took on a new role as Director of Global Security Consultancy & Security, which was an add‑on to his existing position as Director of Portfolio & Delivery at BT Security (BTwatch, #308). Morgan will have around 300 staff under his wing at the new practice. Initial consultancy expertise areas promoted by the unit includes cloud security, cyber‑threat, governance risk and compliance, and zero‑trust services. Target customers range from small- and medium‑size enterprises through to multinational corporates and public sector organisations. BT Security’s ‘ethical hacking’ team, which uses the same tools and techniques as cybercriminals to identify vulnerabilities, will become part of Security Advisory Services.
