INTERPOL World has launched a Strategic Partners Program with private-sector security solutions providers to jointly create solutions to real-world security challenges faced by global police organizations, government agencies and the private sector.
As part of the program, stakeholders across the public and private sectors, international organizations and various security domain experts will come together several times in the course of the year to identify current and future security challenges and to design innovative solutions. These will be presented at the Expo and Congress of INTERPOL World, an event owned by INTERPOL and supported by the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs.
The Strategic Partners Program is part of INTERPOL World 2015 which will be held from 14 – 16 April 2015 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. Help Net Security and (IN)SECURE Magazine are media sponsors of this event.
This innovative program pushes the boundary of Public-Private Partnerships in the security sphere and complements INTERPOL’s ongoing efforts to engage the private sector more actively in finding new, technology-driven solutions to security challenges.
Strategic partners in the Cybersecurity domain, RSA, The Security Division of EMC, Symantec Asia Pacific and Microsoft will discuss and suggest solutions to improve enforcement capabilities such as malware detection, digital forensics, authentication of security systems and cybersecurity research and development.
Motorola Solutions and Thales Solutions Asia will tackle key issues related to the management of Safe Cities such as command and control and prediction, modelling and simulation systems. The Expert Panel also identified the need for an intuitive platform that can integrate all information to improve situational awareness, decision making and information sharing between government agencies for incident or crisis management.
On Border Management, strategic partners Securiport, Entrust of Datacard Group and 3M Identity Management will work on the development of passenger data systems, simple and effective border screening systems as well as the establishment of next generation global information or data protection standards.
Digital Coding and Tracking Association (DCTA) and SICPA are tackling Supply Chain Security issues. In a bid to improve efforts in countering counterfeit and illicit trade, the INTERPOL World Expert Panel has tasked these supply chain security specialists to propose improved product verification technologies and track and trace systems that can be used not only in the pharmaceutical industry but also in the luxury goods and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries. Other issues such as counterfeiting, piracy, smuggling of legitimate products and tax evasion also remain a challenge in this domain.
At INTERPOL World, these solutions will be presented to INTERPOL’s 190 member countries, Expert Panels comprising international organizations and key decision-makers in government and police organizations, as well as security professionals in the private sector.
