Digital Forensics Laboratory

Kaspersky Lab is actively supporting the development of INTERPOL’s new Digital Forensics Laboratory as part of the Digital Crime Centre at the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore.

As part of this initiative, one of Kaspersky Lab’s top experts is on a long-term secondment in Singapore. The aim is to share first-hand the company’s expertise and experience in cyber forensics and investigations, and to help train the INTERPOL team and build technical capacities.

Supporting cyber operations

Kaspersky Lab and INTERPOL have worked together on a number of cyber operations.

In October 2014, the two organizations alerted businesses to the dangers of the Tyupkin ATM malware, which hit dozens of banks around the globe.

During joint investigations in February 2015, the organizations uncovered Carbanak, the criminal plot behind an unprecedented cyber robbery targeting financial institutions worldwide.

Kaspersky Lab took part in a global operation coordinated from the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore, in April 2015, to disrupt the Simda criminal botnet – a network of thousands of infected PCs around the globe.

Joint research

Kaspersky Lab and INTERPOL also work together on research projects, which serve to raise awareness of emerging threats and trends.

At the beginning of 2015, INTERPOL cyber threat researchers, including an expert from Kaspersky Lab, identified a threat to virtual currencies, while in October 2014, the organizations issued a joint report into mobile cyberthreats.

Future plans

Upcoming plans for collaboration include further contributing to the INTERPOL ‘Cyber Alert’; providing state-of-the-art cyber forensic systems at the INTERPOL Global Complex in Singapore; and continuing to develop joint capacity building activities.
