Technology giant Microsoft has unveiled its Cyber Security Engagement Center (CSEC) in Gurgaon in a bid to drive public-private partnerships to fight cybercrime and strengthen cooperation with Indian businesses, government and academic organisations on cyber security.
“India stands at an exciting threshold today as data becomes a key driver of growth across every sector and industry and cloud-based computing become more prevalent. Cyber security is crucial for Digital India. A data driven economy can flourish only when governments, businesses and individuals have access to hyper scale and hyper flexible cloud computing with the confidence that their data is secure,” said Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman, Microsoft India.
Microsoft’s CSEC will work with the National Cybersecurity Coordinator which would help in reducing malware and digital risk in the country, thus enabling a safe digital India.
