Cisco joins hands with Interpol to fight cybercrime

By : |November 21, 2017 0

Cisco has joined hands with the world’s largest international police organization, Interpol to share threat intelligence as the first step in jointly fighting cybercrime.

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.

“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,” said Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director of Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI).



According to John N. Stewart, Senior Vice President and Chief Security and Trust Officer at Cisco, visibility and comprehensive threat intelligence across the cyber domain are critical to enable detection, analysis, and protection against emerging threats and their agreement with Interpol will help them achieve their goal.

Cisco says it blocks 19.7 billion threats a day through its Collective Security Intelligence, enabled by Cisco Talos, the security intelligence and research group.
