With Russia’s leading information security company Kaspersky Lab’s onboard to provide Interpol intelligence on cybercrime worldwide, cyber criminals will likely find it increasingly hard to escape justice.
Today the International Criminal Police Organization expects the Russian cyber security company to be a constant reliable consultant in investigating and preventing cybercrime in the global web.
Earlier this week Interpol’s statement said that Kaspersky Lab “will provide cyber intelligence with a view to Interpol’s sharing it among its 190 member countries seeking to protect cyberspace and investigate cybercriminals”.
“We’re taking an active part in investigating international cybercrime, providing our expertise, technology, and resources to law enforcement authorities of different countries of the world. Now the criminals will never be able to lay low in some distant country, hiding behind the physical borders”, Kaspersky shared.
“Transnational crime cannot be fought in isolation, and drawing on private sector expertise and support against cybercrime is essential. Fighting cybercrime requires that law enforcement at both the national and international levels works with the private sector, particularly its forward-thinking technological leaders such as Kaspersky Lab, in order to keep pace with today’s cybercriminals,” Ronald Noble, INTERPOL Secretary General, told journalists.
“The strong support for the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation expressed by Evgeny Kaspersky, the founder and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, will provide law enforcement in our 190 member countries with the expertise to generate actionable intelligence to protect cyberspace and to bring cybercriminals to justice,” noted Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director of Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), INTERPOL’s new global cyber security department.
