Cisco has collaborated with INTERPOL, the world’s largest international police organization to share threat intelligence as the first step in jointly fighting cybercrime.
Headed by INTERPOL’s global cybercrime center, the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore, the alliance will see the two organizations develop a coordinated and focused approach to data sharing. This not only will allow for quick threat detection around the world, but also pave the way for potential future collaboration on training and knowledge sharing.
Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director of IGCI said, “The exchange of information and expertise between the public and private sectors is vital in combating cybercrime.”
“No country or company can do this alone. INTERPOL’s agreement with Cisco provides us, and law enforcement in our 192 member countries, with access to important cyber-threat information which will help us not only detect attacks but also help prevent them,” added Nakatani.
John N. Stewart, Senior Vice President and Chief Security and Trust Officer at Cisco shared, “Visibility and comprehensive threat intelligence across the cyber domain are critical to enable detection, analysis, and protection against emerging threats. We are pleased to collaborate with INTERPOL to exchange threat intelligence and find other knowledge-sharing opportunities to fight cybercrime globally.”
