Google has opened a new Safety Engineering Centre (GSEC) in Málaga, Spain, to enhance internet security in the region.
This centre, adding to existing ones in Dublin and Munich, will house a broad range of teams and experts focused on advancing cybersecurity R&D, utilising speed and open-source AI.
Kent Walker, Google & Alphabet president of global affairs, said: “GSEC Málaga aims to be part of the solution, a place where we can collaborate with European experts, academics, businesses, and governments on best practices, share research and knowledge, and raise the security bar for all.”
The Málaga GSEC also features a training space for a diverse audience, including government officials, businesses, job seekers, NGOs, and schools.
Additionally, Google has pledged $10m through Google.org to boost cybersecurity skills training and support local community organisations.
