Kaspersky Lab will send its top experts to the IGCI in 2014 and provide broad functional support and threat intelligence on an ongoing basis. Kaspersky Lab lso help with the IGCI’s capacity building efforts to increase the ability of law enforcement agencies worldwide to deal with cyberthreats.
The two 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.
Eugene Kaspersky CEO Kasperky was pleased with the partnership.
He said, “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. 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.”
Serious on ending cybercrime, INTERPOL Secretary General Mr. Noble said, “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.”
