Microsoft has announced the opening of its new Cyber Security Engagement Center (CSEC) in Gurgaon, India, deepening its commitment to enhancing cybersecurity. The Gurgaon center is one of the seven centers globally and will serve as a dedicated hub for Microsoft in India.
The CSEC aims to drive public-private partnerships to fight cybercrime, strengthen the cooperation with Indian businesses, government and academic organizations on cybersecurity, and increase its contribution towards securing Indian computer and internet users from cybercrime threats.
It brings together Microsoft's Digital Crime Unit (DCU) experts comprising attorneys, investigators, and security response experts from across the company. The DCU seeks to build trust by fighting global malware, reducing digital risk, and protecting vulnerable populations by combining big data analytics, cutting-edge forensics, and novel legal strategies to protect customer data, keep people in control of personal information, and help protect seniors and children online.
The CSEC will leverage Microsoft's DCU Cyber Threat Intelligence Program that monitors and analyze malware infections, provide malware threat assessment, and provide actionable information and intelligence for select IP infrastructures shared by its customers on a non-commercial basis.
Announcing CSEC, Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman, Microsoft India, said,
India stands at an exciting threshold today as data becomes a key driver of growth across every sector and industry and Cloud based computing becomes more prevalent. Cybersecurity 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. Our Cyber Security Engagement Center in Gurgaon underlines our relentless commitment to security and partnering India in its digital transformation.
As part of Microsoft Consultancy Services (MCS), a dedicated India-based response team will also offer cyber monitoring, use machine learning based detection technology, and ensure rapid response and resolution to cyber threats to enterprise customers in the country.
Microsoft's CSEC will combine the company's tools and technology with cross-industry expertise to effectively reduce digital risks. It will work with the National Cybersecurity Coordinator as well as the CERT-India and share information to help reduce malware and digital risk in the country, enabling a safe digital India.
