Trend Micro to support INTERPOL cybercrime centre
Trend Micro to provide cyber security training at INTERPOL's Global Complex for Innovation
Trend Micro has announced its support for INTERPOL's plans for a Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), which will be dedicated to investigating global cybercrimes.
The IGCI, which is being established in Singapore and will become operational in 2014, will focus on complex, large-scale cross-jurisdictional investigations, with support from the private sector and law enforcement agencies.
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.
The centre was set up in response to the increasing severity of cybercrimes, and the global nature of the threats. The IGCI will share information with INTERPOL's 190 member countries to protect against cybercrime and track perpetrators.
Trend Micro will deliver training programs to INTERPOL, government and/or police organisations 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 include e-learning modules, classroom-based training sessions, workshops and/or professional certifications, based on overall goals and learning objectives.
In March, Kaspersky Lab announced its support for the IGCI, and in December, Japan's NEC Corporation provided technical and human resources worth some EUR 7.6 million to establish a Digital Forensic Lab and Cyber-Fusion Centre within INTERPOL's Digital Crime Centre.
