Infosys partners with Queen’s University Belfast to combat cyber security threats

Infosys has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Queen’s University Belfast for research and collaboration on combating global cyber security threats.

This agreement will bring Infosys together, with Queen’s University Belfast’s Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), one of UK’s largest and most prestigious university cyber security research labs, and Invest Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland government’s regional business development agency.

The partnership will establish a research, education and commercialization model, to develop solutions and intellectual property for combating cyber security threats arising out of the emergence of digital and cloud-based business models. Infosys and CSIT will work together on a wide range of topics comprising combating malware, security of mobile and cloud infrastructure, and privacy issues for financial markets.

Subu Goparaju, Senior Vice President, Infosys Labs and Products R&D, said: “The rise of cloud and mobility solutions has only increased the need for greater cyber security. This is a top concern we hear from executives around the globe. Our partnership with Queen’s University will provide us with insights into cyber-crimes and access to the important work being done at CSIT. We believe the outcome of this partnership will not only result in stronger products for our clients, but in a safer digital world.”
