BT and UTS team-up to fight cybercrime

BT signed a five-year agreement with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to accelerate innovation and the development of solutions to tackle the growing threat of cybercrime.

The collaboration will focus on cybersecurity as well as machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analytics and visualisation. 

As a result of the agreement, both organisations will be able to accelerate cybersecurity development building on UTS infrastructure and expertise as well as explore new technologies to support future products and services. 

BT security experts and researchers may also engage with UTS students through guest lectures, internships and innovation programs.

BT is recognised by industry analysts as a leader in managed security services in Asia Pacific as well as globally.  

BT Australasia MD Tim Cavill says, “We believe working with UTS will ensure Australia stays ahead of the innovation curve by bringing together the world of academia with our significant focus on R&D in this sector and large company backing. 

“This move aligns to our focus of providing services to global multinational companies with a portfolio of scalable repeatable solutions, all supported by outstanding customer service and market-leading security.” 

“With our strong heritage in technology, we believe our strategic partnership with UTS will ultimately help better protect Australian organisations and alleviate the skills shortage.”

Its global network of 15 Security Operations Centres and more than 3,000 security professionals provide security services to customers in 180 countries.

UTS VP Glenn Wightwick says, “We are delighted to align with industry experts who are as passionate about innovation as we are. 

“BT’s commitment to working with UTS provides a great opportunity for us to jointly help address the cyber skills shortage and further strengthen our local cyber R&D capability.”
