Software giant Microsoft Indiatoday said it has launched its first full-scale CybersecurityEngagement Centre (CSEC) in the country. Situated in Delhi, the first-of-its-kind centre in India will bring together Microsoft capabilities to foster deeper cybersecurity collaborations with public and private sector organisations and build a trusted and secure computing environment, a critical enabler for India's digital transformation, the company said in a release.
It said this is Microsoft's seventh Cybersecurity Centre in the world and will function as a satellite to the company's Redmond Digital Crimes Unit (DCU).
The company has also rolled out a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about cybersecurity among Indian organisations.
