SecureLink confirms opening a Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) in China

SecureLink – Europe’s independent cybersecurity and Managed Security Service provider, confirmed it is opening a Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) in Shanghai, China. Laws and regulations covering cybersecurity and data protection are rapidly increasing globally. With the introduction of local expertise and localised services, SecureLink can support its customers with both international cybersecurity challenges and Chinese-specific requirements.

SecureLink’s CDC is built on advanced technology, powered by a strong combination of artificial and human intelligence-driven solutions. This robust foundation, combined with its solid focus on best practice, ensures integrity, quality and security for all its CDC customers helping them realise cybersecurity as an enabler.

Speaking about this move, SecureLink’s CEO – Marco Barkmeijer said, “Cyber-crime doesn’t respect borders, so we’re working to remove ours to deliver continuously reliable cybersecurity worldwide. We recognised that our customers were increasingly looking for a trusted cybersecurity partner in China. By opening our new CDC in Shanghai, they now have someone that they can trust, providing the reassurance that their cybersecurity requirements will be managed globally.”

The new Shanghai CDC is the latest milestone in SecureLink’s expansion.

This means that other companies can also come to us knowing that we have the strength, resources and knowledge to ensure their security anytime, anywhere. We learn and improve based on the data we see daily, and with this new source of information we can deliver an even higher quality service.
