Tech giant Microsoft has announced the opening of its Cyber Security Engagement Center (CSEC) in Gurgaon, India. The much awaited and acclaimed center aims to drive public-private partnerships to fight cybercrime, strengthen the cooperation with Indian businesses and government and academic organizations on cyber security.
The Gurgaon center is one of the seven centers globally and will serve as a dedicated hub for Microsoft in India.
