The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) has deepened its partnership with cybersecurity giant Kaspersky with a five-year agreement that will see both parties work together against cybercrime.
Signed at the Interpol World 2019 event in Singapore, the agreement will see Kaspersky will provide human resources support, training and threat intelligence data to enable Interpol to have the latest information necessary to fight ever-evolving threats.
Kaspersky said in its press release that it recognises the need for cross-border cooperation to effectively combat cybercrime, adding that it recently launched its advanced free service for Law Enforcement Agencies that aims to demystify how the company operates and how it can boost digital security.
"With the rise of sophisticated threat actors, collaboration across the ecosystem and the sharing of expertise is more crucial than ever. We are excited to continue the partnership with Interpol and to empower law enforcers with the information and technology needed to combat cybercrime across the globe," said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky, according to the firm’s press release.
