Microsoft is planning to set up a new cyber security center in New Delhi in India according to a report in the Economic Times. According to the report, this new center will help “arm governments and private agencies with all-round intelligence on cyber attacks within the country” and is speculated to be built in Connaught Place.
Microsoft India’s chairman, Bhaskar Pramanik, told the Economic Times that, “Security is becoming a big conversation topic, especially when are talking about the cloud” and revealed that “We shared this idea with the government departments and they are all very excited about it.”
Back in June of this year, Microsoft opened a Cyber Security Engagement Centre elsewhere in India, in Gurugram. Pramanik stated at the time that, “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.”
