Singapore, November 21, 2017
Cisco®, the worldwide technology leader, and INTERPOL, the world’s largest international police organization, have today announced an agreement 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.
Cisco’s agreement with INTERPOL supports the organization’s programs targeting both “pure cybercrime” and cyber-enabled crimes to assist member countries with identifying cyberattacks and their perpetrators.
