INTERPOL and Kaspersky Lab sign new threat intelligence exchange agreement

SINGAPORE - INTERPOL and Kaspersky Lab have signed a new agreement which will see increased cooperation between the two organizations to prevent and combat cybercrime.

The legal framework is designed to facilitate and develop cooperation between Kaspersky Lab and INTERPOL by sharing threat intelligence data on the latest cybercriminal activities.

Since the first agreement between the two organizations was signed in 2014, Kaspersky Lab experts have regularly cooperated with INTERPOL to share fresh cyberthreat discoveries with police in its member countries.

Earlier this year, Kaspersky Lab participated in an INTERPOL-led cybercrime operation which identified nearly 9,000 botnet command and control (C2) servers and hundreds of compromised websites, including government portals, across the ASEAN region.

Kaspersky Lab has also previously assisted in a global operation coordinated by the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore to disrupt the Simda criminal botnet – a network of more than 770,000 infected PCs around the world.
