Microsoft Opens Cybersecurity Center in Mexico

Microsoft launches a Mexican cybersecurity center and signs a Government Security Program to promote IT security research.

Tech giant Microsoft has launched a Cybersecurity Engagement Center in Mexico. The organization will work with its Redmond Cybercrime Center to provide support to Mexico, and other Latin American governments, in fighting regional cybercrime. Microsoft has also signed a Government Security Program with Mexico's Federal Police to promote IT security research and cyber incident prevention.

"At Microsoft, we are committed to invest in the region so we can bring our cybersecurity capabilities to customers by identifying current threats that affect the economy's prosperity," explains Jorge Silva of Microsoft Mexico.

The center will work towards dismantling cybercriminal groups that operate through botnet schemes, and train authorities and the public sector in matters of creating and adopting strong cybersecurity measures.

"The objective is to help companies and governments with security solutions, which help them in their digital transformation through the international support of the intelligence, data analysis, avant-garde forensics and legal strategies that we offer," says Jean-Philippe Courtois of Microsoft Global Sales.
