BT announced the opening of a cyber security research and development hub in Sydney, Australia.

BT, which is expanding its existing Security Operation Centre (SOC), said the hub will create up to 172 new skilled jobs over five years. The centre will also offer job opportunities for 38 graduates with relevant degrees.

BT will also make a $2 million investment in capital infrastructure and a further multi-million dollar investment to employ cyber security specialists at the hub.

“The hub will be a cornerstone of our global cyber security capabilities and help us stay ahead in this fast moving space,” said Mark Hughes, CEO of BT Security.

The hub is BT’s first cyber security R&D facility outside of the United Kingdom and will employ highly qualified cyber security specialists. Cyber security, machine learning, data science analytics and visualisation, big data engineering, cloud computing, data networking, and software engineering will be the focus areas of these cyber security specialists at BT.

BT has a global network of 14 Security Operations Centres, providing cyber security service for customers in 180 countries.

BT said the hub will host cyber security systems integration and services teams as well as BT’s newly created role of chief global engineer for cyber product development.

Minister for Innovation Matt Kean said the NSW Government-backed Jobs for NSW would provide a $1.67 million grant to BT.
