“Cyber security is a global problem which requires a global response,“ Richard Watson, Detica managing director for Asia Pacific and the Middle East, said in the release.

“We have trusted client relationships across government and commercial markets and look forward to providing them an expanded cyber product and services portfolio,“ he added.
