SINGAPORE – A formal agreement between INTERPOL and Trend Micro will see even closer cooperation between the two organizations in combating cybercrime.
Under the three-year agreement, signed at the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore, Trend Micro will share its threat information analysis with INTERPOL to assist the world police body to investigate, deter and prevent cybercrime.
“We are proud to support INTERPOL in their vital role combating cybercrime across the globe,” said Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro. “Our partnership with INTERPOL will provide tools, training and human resources to strengthen their team’s capability to fight criminal activity around the world.”
Trend Micro will also provide input into the design and implementation of a training programme to improve techniques and increase the capabilities of INTERPOL’s 190 member countries in cybercrime investigations.
“Protecting the public and businesses from cyberthreats requires law enforcement to work closely with and to rely upon the expertise of the private sector,” said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.
“INTERPOL’s agreement with Trend Micro will enable us to draw upon each other’s strength to ensure law enforcement around the world can access the necessary tools and resources to help investigators better meet the digital crime challenges of today and in the future,” added the INTERPOL Chief.
The state-of-the art IGCI will equip the world’s police with the tools and knowledge to better tackle cybercrime, and as a research and development facility will also provide innovative training and operational support for law enforcement around the world.
