Cisco & Interpol collaborate in fight against cyber crime

Singapore

John N. Stewart, Senior Vice President and Chief Security and Trust Officer, Cisco, and Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director, Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), sign collaboration agreement to combat cyber crime.

Earlier this month, Cisco and Interpol agreed to form an agreement to share threat intelligence as the first step in jointly fighting cyber crime.

Headed by Interpol’s global cyber crime centre, the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore, the alliance will see the two organisations 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, commented: “The exchange of information and expertise between the public and private sectors is vital in combating cyber crime. 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.”

John N. Stewart, Senior Vice President and Chief Security and Trust Officer at Cisco, shared, “As cyber crime continues to escalate around the world, defenders from both the public and private sectors must meet the threat with equal force. 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 cyber crime globally.”

Naveen Menon, President of Cisco, Southeast Asia, said, “This agreement, signed in Singapore, demonstrates the country’s growing importance in the Asia Pacific region and on the world stage as a center for battling cyber crime and driving cyber security innovation. We are part of a diverse region with differing levels of technological maturity. This initiative represents an important step in creating a unified strategy to reduce digital risks and enable economic growth without the fear of digital threats and attacks.”
