Consulting firm opens cybersecurity center in Manila

EY, a company that offers assurance, tax, transaction, and advisory services, announced the launch of its frontline cybersecurity center in Manila.

This multimillion facility sits out of EY’s Global Delivery Services (EY GDS) and will be a revolutionary expansion of the global cybersecurity services, playing an important role to reaffirm EY’s leading position in helping organizations mitigate cyber risks and strengthen cyber resilience.

The facility offers highly automated security services that are supported by intelligent automation. Examples include triaged incident response services, threat hunting and threat protection powered by security orchestration, automation and response, said EY GDS.

“We operate in a vast digital landscape and cyber risks are evolving,” said Maria Elizabeth de Guzman, location leader, GDS Cybersecurity. “Attackers can hit us on machine speed while many organizations are still responding on human speed. Our new GDS Manila cybersecurity center is strategically built to continue to raise awareness and defenses through the latest technology and innovation against emerging threats as we develop forward-looking cybersecurity services for EY clients.”

EY executive leaders and government officials came together to show their support in the launch of the new cybersecurity facility in Taguig City, Manila

EY pointed to its own security survey which found 77% of organizations operate with limited cybersecurity and resilience, while 87% say they do not yet have sufficient budget to provide the levels of cybersecurity they want.
