HYDERABAD: Unlike earlier when global capability centres (GCCs) for cybersecurity used to be concentrated only in Bengaluru, Hyderabad in recent times has emerged one of the major cities in the country with cyber delivery capabilities, a study which released on Friday said.

The study, Secure In India, by accounting firm KPMG and trade association NASSCOM listed Hyderabad along with Pune, Chennai, Gurugram, Bengaluru and Delhi. “Organisations are also considering emerging locations like Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Coimbatore, Trivandrum and Kolkata (for the same),” the study said. While Pune leads the presence of Cyber GCCs with 33 per cent of GCCs, Hyderabad comes at fourth with 20 per cent. 

Global capability centres, according to study, are insourced, employee-based alternatives to the traditional outsourced IT services model. These GCCs, when combined with right talent, are apt for cybersecurity. 
With cyber attacks increasing — at a rate of 8.2 per cent every year — companies have increased allocation towards their cyber GCCs in 2018. At least 43 per cent of companies in the country increased its annual budget by 10 per cent for the same, and 35 per cent increased it between 11-30 per cent.
