Powered by innovative solutions, Capgemini’s pools of certified cybersecurity experts across the world provide clients with improved resilience, and comprehensive intelligence to secure their critical infrastructures,” said Geert van der Linden, Cybersecurity Business Lead at Capgemini.

The new Cyber Defense Center in Poland complements Capgemini’s existing network of thirteen CDCs, including the Asturias (Spain) CDC specializing in cloud and industrial solutions, the Inverness (UK) CDC specializing in pharmaceutical solutions and forensics, the CDC in Bangalore and Mumbai (India), which is the Group’s largest and includes identity and access management (IAM) factory too, the CDC in San Diego (NA), as well as satellite CDCs in important regions such as Australia (Melbourne) and Europe (Paris in France; Utrecht in the Netherlands). These CDCs support Capgemini’s delivery capabilities in Managed Security Services by offering a local and regional presence, with a commitment to sharing knowledge and information on global cybersecurity trends, threats, and the most effective response.
