New Cybersecurity R&D Lab
As data breaches occur more frequently and the associated costs continue to rise, cybersecurity is becoming increasingly critical to every company in the world. To help its customers safeguard their data, the Cybersecurity R&D Lab, operating as part of EPAM’s network of Garages, will contribute to global cybersecurity community research and complement EPAM’s capabilities across a range of information security domains.
