WhiteHawk (ASX:WHK) says that, through the partnership, it becomes the response arm for all small and midsize businesses that contact CSN in need of cyber crime and fraud response and mitigation services.
The CSN, a US-based public-private, non-profit collaboration to assist victims of cyber crime, was established to give a voice to companies affected by cyber crime and support a co-ordinated response from federal, state and local law enforcement responders managing cyber crime events.
And in the US, CSN is piloting US programs to utilise existing referral infrastructure to triage cyber crime reporting and response allowing these companies to report the crime and receive access to resources and support.
“The Cybercrime Support Network understands the needs of small and midsize businesses as they navigate the new cyber threats. Partnering with Whitehawk to support businesses during and after an incident will make our impact even stronger,” said Kristin Judge, CSN chief executive and president.
Terry Roberts, executive chair of WhiteHawk, said, “We have to address the huge gap we have in both reporting online crime and fraud and effectively responding to and mitigating the impacts of cyber disruption to all.
“By putting this strategic partnership in place we are enabling both and most important of all preventing future criminal actions. Our online platform, patent pending artificial intelligence tool, known as the CyberPath, is accessible and open to all businesses in need.”
