OTTAWA, June 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704; TSE:4704), a
global leader in security software and solutions, today announced its
collaboration with INTERPOL to support global law enforcement programs
Today's cyber threats are becoming increasingly more targeted and sophisticated with criminal
networks operating across the world, coordinating complex attacks
against targets in a matter of minutes.
Due to the complexity of the cyber-threat landscape, cybercrime investigations are profoundly different in nature to traditional crime, requiring
high-level technical expertise and large-scale cross-jurisdictional
investigations. It is essential that law enforcement prioritize
resources, build cross-jurisdictional and cross-sectorial collaboration
in addition to developing the technical expertise, tools and
infrastructure required to effectively combat threats and eventually
enhance digital security.
In response, INTERPOL is establishing the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore in 2014, which will be the center of excellence for
cybercrime toward facilitating international cooperation. The IGCI will
seek to implement an alliance with multi-stakeholders, including
Internet security specialists from the private sector, to leverage
their respective expertise and resources for the benefit of global law
enforcement agencies fighting cybercrime.
Trend Micro, will support INTERPOL with its expertise in mitigating
cyber threats. On June 21, Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro met with Ronald
K. Noble, Secretary General of INTERPOL in Lyon, France to discuss the
parameters of this important endeavor.
Trend Micro will deliver training programs to INTERPOL, government
and/or police organizations in various participating countries, and
major companies that manage basic infrastructure, with corresponding
expertise and best practices to address emerging digital crime at the
national and international level. Training will encompass e-learning
modules, classroom-based training sessions, workshops and/or
professional certifications, based on overall goals and learning

corporate vision of establishing "A World Safe for Exchanging Digital
