Trend Micro to collaborate with Interpol
Security software company to support international police co-op in battle against cyber criminals
Security software vendor Trend Micro today confirmed it has entered into a three-year agreement with Interpol to help the international police co-operative and its 190 member countries to battle cybercrime around the world.
"We are proud to support Interpol in their vital role combatting cybercrime across the globe," said Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro. "Our partnership with Interpol will provide tools, training and human resources to strengthen their team's capability to fight criminal activity."
Over the next three years, Trend Micro will share its threat information analysis with Interpol officers through its Threat Intelligence Service. The company hopes the effort will also help to bridge the gap in information-sharing between the public and private sectors.
"As the world's largest international police organisation, Interpol has a responsibility to forge partnerships across all sectors to ensure our member countries have access to the tools and resources they need to assist investigators to prevent and solve crimes," said recently retired Interpol secretary general Ronald K Noble, who stepped down earlier this month. "Trend Micro's strong support for the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation will enable us to leverage their expertise in supporting each of our 190 member countries in their efforts to combat cyber threats."
Trend Micro will also assist Interpol by running a cybercrime investigation training programme to enhance the cyber security capabilities of member countries. Trend Micro will station a security researcher onsite at the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore.
