Trend Micro joins hands with Interpol
Lyon (France), July 1, 2013
Trend Micro, a global leader in security software and solutions, said it has collaborated with world's largest international policing organisation, Interpol, to support global law enforcement programs against cybercrime.
Today’s cyber threats are becoming increasingly more targeted and sophisticated with criminal networks operating across the world, co-ordinating complex attacks against targets in a matter of minutes, said a statement from the company.
Due to the complexity of the cyber-threat landscape, cybercrime investigations are profoundly different in nature to traditional crime, requiring high-level technical expertise and large-scale cross-jurisdictional investigations.
It is essential that law enforcement prioritize resources, build cross-jurisdictional and cross-sectorial collaboration in addition to developing the technical expertise, tools and infrastructure required to effectively combat threats and eventually enhance digital security, it stated.
In response, Interpol is establishing the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore next year, which will be the centre of excellence for cybercrime towards facilitating international co-operation.
The IGCI will seek to implement an alliance with multi-stakeholders, including Internet security specialists from the private sector, to leverage their respective expertise and resources for the benefit of global law enforcement agencies fighting cybercrime, said the company statement.
Under the collaboration, Trend Micro, will support Interpol with its expertise in mitigating cyber threats, said Eva Chen, the CEO of Trend Micro after meeting Ronald K. Noble, the secretary general of Interpol in Lyon, France to discuss the parameters of this important endeavour.
Trend Micro will deliver training programs to Interpol, government and/or police organizations in various participating countries, and major companies that manage basic infrastructure, with corresponding expertise and best practices to address emerging digital crime at the national and international level.
Training will encompass e-learning modules, classroom-based training sessions, workshops and/or professional certifications, based on overall goals and learning objectives.-TradeArabia News Service
