Cybersecurity firm Kaspersky and INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organisation) have signed a new five-year agreement to reinforce their collaboration in the fight against cybercrime around the world.

This is the second agreement between Kaspersky and INTERPOL following the first signed in 2014.

Under the contribution agreement, Kaspersky will provide human resources support, training, and threat intelligence data on the latest cybercriminal activities to INTERPOL, strengthening the organisation’s cyberthreat hunting capabilities.

This cooperation ensured information and technology sharing can support INTERPOL in cybercrime-related investigations.

With the new agreement, Kaspersky will share information about its cyberthreat research and provide the necessary tools to assist with full digital forensics, aimed at strengthening efforts on the prevention of cyberattacks.

“With the rise of sophisticated threat actors, collaboration across the ecosystem and the sharing of expertise is more crucial than ever,” said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky. “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.” 

Kaspersky said his company recognises the borderless nature of cybercrime and regularly participates in joint operations and cyberthreat investigations with the global IT security community, international organisations such as INTERPOL, law enforcement agencies and CERTs worldwide.

Recently, the company announced an advanced free service for Law Enforcement Agencies, aimed at increasing the awareness of how Kaspersky services operate and how they can help fight cybercrime and sophisticated cyberthreats.
