Trend Micro is to collaborate with INTERPOL, the world police body, to support global law enforcement programmes to combat cybercrime. The announcement is the latest in INTERPOL’s efforts to boost the global fight against cybercrime by engaging with private sector leaders.
Following talks on Friday at INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters between INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and Trend Micro’s Chief Executive Officer, Eva Chen, Trend Micro is set to deliver training programmes to INTERPOL, government and police agencies in various participating countries to address emerging digital crime at the national and international level.
Including expertise and best practices, training will encompass e-learning modules, classroom-based training sessions, workshops and professional certifications.
Trend Micro will also help support the development of an INTERPOL cyber alert by providing expert cyber-threat analysis at INTERPOL’s Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) when it opens in Singapore in 2014. This cyber-specific alert created by the IGCI will be used to share information on cybercrime with not only the law enforcement community but also the general public.
As a research and development facility for the identification of crimes and criminals, the state-of-the-art IGCI will provide innovative training and operational support for each of INTERPOL’s 190 member countries.
