Trend Micro And INTERPOL To Collaborate

Trend Micro will deliver training programs to INTERPOL

Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704; TSE:4704), a global leader in security software and solutions, today announced its collaboration with INTERPOL to support global law enforcement programs against cybercrime.

Today's cyber threats are becoming increasingly more targeted and sophisticated with criminal networks operating across the world, coordinating complex attacks against targets in a matter of minutes.

Due to the complexity of the cyber-threat landscape, cybercrime investigations are profoundly different in nature to traditional crime, requiring high-level technical expertise and large-scale cross-jurisdictional investigations. It is essential that law enforcement prioritize resources, build cross-jurisdictional and cross-sectorial collaboration in addition to developing the technical expertise, tools and infrastructure required to effectively combat threats and eventually enhance digital security.

In response, INTERPOL is establishing the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore in 2014, which will be the centre of excellence for cybercrime toward facilitating international cooperation. The IGCI will seek to implement an alliance with multi-stakeholders, including Internet security specialists from the private sector, to leverage their respective expertise and resources for the benefit of global law enforcement agencies fighting cybercrime.

Trend Micro, will support INTERPOL with its expertise in mitigating cyber threats. On June 21, Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro met with Ronald K. Noble, Secretary General of INTERPOL in Lyon, France to discuss the parameters of this important endeavor.

Trend Micro will deliver training programs to INTERPOL, government and/or police organizations in various participating countries, and major companies that manage basic infrastructure, with corresponding expertise and best practices to address emerging digital crime at the national and international level. Training will encompass e-learning modules, classroom-based training sessions, workshops and/or professional certifications, based on overall goals and learning objectives.

The alliance with INTERPOL will enable Trend Micro to fulfill its corporate vision of establishing "A World Safe for Exchanging Digital Information."
