Arctic Wolf Managed SOC and SIEM

Report of Corporate Director Resources.


The Corporate Director Resources submitted a report seeking the Resources Portfolio Holder to approve the purchase of a Managed Security Operations Centre (SOC) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) service from Arctic Wolf utilising funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) and from the ICT Strategy Reserve.


The report is exempt from publication under category 7 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 as it contains “Information relating to any action taken or to be taken in connection with the prevention, investigation or prosecution of crime”. For the same reason, some aspects of the decision that are also exempt from publication have not been included below




The Resources Portfolio Holder agreed:


That approval is given to proceed with the purchase under the Exemption to Contract Procedures contained within the Financial Regulations and Financial Procedures Rules on the grounds that if a framework agreement (Digital Workplace Solutions Framework: SBS/19/CW/ZMD/9348) is available that necessitates the council not having to go out to tender and the goods, works or services will still provide the council with best value for money.
