Trend Micro and INTERPOL team up against cybercrime Featured

By

Security software and solutions firm Trend Micro has announced a three-year agreement with INTERPOL that will see it provide tools, training and human resources to the international police organisation and its 190 member countries.

“We are proud to support INTERPOL in their vital role combatting cybercrime across the globe,” said Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro. “Our partnership with INTERPOL will provide tools, training and human resources to strengthen their team’s capability to fight criminal activity around the world.”

Over the next three years, Trend Micro will share its threat information analysis with INTERPOL officers through its Trend Micro Threat Intelligence Service. The goal of this initiative is to investigate, deter and ultimately prevent cybercrimes. This effort will also help to bridge the gap in information-sharing between the public and private sectors.

“As the world’s largest international police organisation, INTERPOL has a responsibility to forge partnerships across all sectors to ensure our member countries have access to the tools and resources they need to assist investigators to prevent and solve crimes,” said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

“Trend Micro’s strong support for the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation will enable us to leverage their expertise in supporting each of our 190 member countries in their efforts to combat cyber threats."

Trend Micro, headquartered in Japan, said it will also assist INTERPOL in providing a cybercrime investigation training program to improve techniques and increase capabilities of member countries conducting a growing number of investigations.

To support these new initiatives, a Trend Micro security researcher will be onsite at the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore.

Trend Micro products which will be available to INTERPOL for use at the IGCI, and beyond, include OfficeScan, InterScan Web Security and PortalProtect to secure portals and endpoints; ScanMail Suite and InterScan Messaging Security to provide secure communications; and Deep Security to protect web-based applications.

This agreement was commemorated during a formal signing ceremony held at the ICGI today.

During the INTERPOL-Europol Cybercrime conference 2014 (1 – 3 October), Trend Micro’s CTO, Raimund Genes, will deliver a keynote address, and Robert McArdle from Trend Micro’s forward threat research team will present a case study detailing the application of the company’s technology in cybercrime investigations.

The International Criminal Police Organization, or INTERPOL, is an intergovernmental organization facilitating international police cooperation, and was established in 1923.

INTERPOL, which is the second largest intergovernmental organization after the United Nations by member states, has an annual budget of around €70 million.

The organisation is headquartered in Lyon, France.
