Kaspersky Lab To Actively Support INTERPOL Global Complex For Innovation

Kaspersky Lab to send on secondment its top experts to the IGCI once it becomes operational in 2014

Woburn, MA – March 21, 2013 – Kaspersky Lab has agreed to work closely with the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI). This was announced after a meeting between Eugene Kaspersky, CEO and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab, Ronald Noble, INTERPOL Secretary General, and Noboru Nakatani, IGCI Executive Director, held on March 19, 2013 at Kaspersky Lab's headquarters in Moscow.

Topping the agenda for the meeting were the topics of cybercrime and emerging cyberthreats, plus the importance of collective efforts in the fight against cybercriminals to better secure the Internet. The key results of the meeting were Kaspersky Lab confirming it plans to send on secondment its top experts to the IGCI once it becomes operational in 2014, and also to provide broad functional support and threat intelligence on an ongoing basis. Kaspersky Lab has also agreed to help with the IGCI's capacity building efforts to increase the ability of law enforcement agencies worldwide to deal with cyberthreats in general.

The IGCI will equip international cyber police forces with the tools and knowledge needed to better tackle the cybercrime threats of the 21st century, for example by identifying criminals and by providing innovative training and operational support for law enforcement across the globe.

Quotes:

Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder

Kaspersky Lab

"I am most pleased with the outcome of this meeting. I have been pushing for the creation of what I used to call an 'Internet-INTERPOL' for over a decade now, and at last it has finally come to pass. It should come as no surprise that we wholeheartedly support this initiative, testified to by our plans to second some of our top analysts over to the IGCI in Singapore. Soon cybercriminals will have nowhere to hide - not able to hole up in this or that country, as they have been able to up to now. The net is closing in on cybercriminals - both the proverbial one and the Inter-net."

Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director

IGCI

"The strong support for the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation expressed by Eugene Kaspersky, the founder and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, will provide law enforcement in our 190 member countries with the expertise to generate actionable intelligence to protect cyberspace and to bring cybercriminals to justice."

Ronald Noble, Secretary General

INTERPOL

"Transnational crime cannot be fought in isolation, and drawing on private sector expertise and support against cybercrime is essential. Fighting cybercrime requires that law enforcement at both the national and international levels works with the private sector, particularly its forward-thinking technological leaders such as Kaspersky Lab, in order to keep pace with today's cybercriminals."
