Continuing the trend of Indian companies expanding their overseas presence, Infosys announced on July 29 that it would be expanding its current team in Romania by recruiting local talent and investing in advanced training for both current and new hires. Infosys, one of India’s leading IT-BPM majors, presently runs operations in around 45 countries globally.
Earlier this year, the Infosys Digital Innovation Centre had opened in Bucharest, Romania. The state-of-the-art Cyber Defence Centre is an expansion of services delivered through the same. The Defence Centre will provide end-to-end, real-time, 24/7 cyber security monitoring and protection services to support European and global businesses on their digital transformation journeys. These services include security monitoring, management and remediation, threat hunting, security analytics, incident discovery, and response, and will be delivered by certified and highly skilled cyber security professionals. Moreover, the services offered comply with country-specific regulatory requirements.
Ravi Kumar S, president, Infosys, said: “[…]This Cyber Defence Centre is the latest addition to our global network of Security Operation Centres across the world and enhances our ability to provide end-to-end cyber security solutions to our clients. Romania is an established leader in the European cyber security talent market and is a natural choice for us to invest in and develop our cyber security research and innovation potential.”
India and Romania have had diplomatic ties for over 70 years, cemented with an official visit by Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu last year. The two countries have signed agreements in the areas of tourism, energy research, as well as three agreements between the Bucharest Chamber of Commerce and India’s CII, ASSOCHAM and PHDCC. The strengthening ties have facilitated opportunities such as the one launched by Infosys.
