NEC and INTERPOL Partner to Strengthen Cyber Security

NEC Corporation, a leader in the integration of IT and network technologies, announced the conclusion of a global cyber security agreement with the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) - INTERPOL.int / NEC.com.

This partnership will replace an existing agreement that was formed in 2014. The combination of INTERPOL’s international network with NEC's cutting-edge cyber security solutions will assist the investigation and analysis of complex and sophisticated cybercrime, and contribute to strengthening security at an international level.

INTERPOL (interpol.int) is the world's largest international police organization, formed by countries around the world to prevent international crime. Today, 194 countries are members of the organization.

Through this partnership, NEC will provide INTERPOL’s Cybercrime Programme which is based in Singapore with services that contribute to cybercrime investigation, including the detection of cybercrime, the identification of criminals, detection of crime signs, and the provision of training (capacity building) for cybercrime investigators and forensic experts who belong to INTERPOL. In this way, the two sides will work together to strengthen the state-of-the-art cyber security measures provided to member countries of INTERPOL.
