Moreover, it has an accomplished history and know-how in the provision of services to government agencies and private companies in Europe.
NEC, Infosec and SEC Consult aim to build systems that enable the provision of advanced security products and monitoring services by utilizing the strengths of each company, including cyber-attack information and technical know-how, to contribute to the enhancement of cybersecurity.
