Mastercard announces first European Cyber Resilience Centre!

Mastercard yesterday announced it is developing its first European Cyber Resilience Centre, a state-of-the-art cyber and security center in Europe that will drive collaboration between both public and private sectors, as well as regulatory bodies to further support enterprise resilience in the region.

Located in Waterloo, Belgium at Mastercard’s European headquarters, the center is the first of its kind that the company has invested in outside of North America.

Javier Perez, president Europe at Mastercard, said: “Financial services will always be at the top of the target list for attackers due to the vast pool of customer data and credentials under our responsibility. Our European Cyber Resilience Centre improves collaboration amongst key organizations, helping to ensure businesses and individuals feel secure when sharing information online.”

The Cyber Resilience Centre will drastically shorten the lines of communication amongst internal Mastercard teams and externally with customers, partners and stakeholders.

“The security and privacy of our customers’ data is paramount. Fraudsters and hackers know no borders or nationalities, so threats can strike from every corner of the world. Only a joint effort that involves all parties will be able to place Europe on the frontline of enterprise resilience,” said Perez. “This new center will synchronize our global resources and partners to constantly seek and adopt the best practices for us and our customer network.”
