Fortinet Signs Threat Information Sharing Agreement with INTERPOL
Formal Relationship Showcases Public and Private Collaboration in Combating Cybercrime & Privacy Protection, Globally SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silvino Schlickmann Jr., acting executive director, INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation “Tackling cybercrime cannot be resolved unilaterally by law enforcement alone, but is a joint responsibility which requires trusted relationships with the private sector. This new agreement with Fortinet will ensure that law enforcement have access to the most comprehensive threat intelligence necessary to take effective action against cybercrime.” Derek Manky, global security strategist, Fortinet “Organizations continue to struggle against evolving threats, an expanding attack surface, and a growing security skills shortage. Law enforcement, in particular, can also be hampered by the fact that cybercrime often crosses political and jurisdictional boundaries. Actionable threat intelligence with global visibility is the best way to move from being reactive to proactive in a world where cybercrime has no borders. No single organization has a complete view into the security landscape, which is why threat information sharing and collaboration between public and private organizations is critical.” News Summary Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT), a global leader in broad, automated and integrated cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it has formalized its threat sharing with INTERPOL.
- The goal of the agreement is to proactively combat cybercrime and threats to privacy globally through the sharing of threat information generated by Fortinet FortiGuard Labs global threat research team.
- Fortinet will be involved in operational briefings at INTERPOL and vice versa. A threat intelligence expert from Fortinet will be assigned to collaborate with experts at the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), helping provide a clearer understanding of the current threat landscape, which in turn will help the INTERPOL team and law enforcement use the information to prevent risks to security and privacy.
- While the agreement formalizes the cooperation between Fortinet and INTERPOL, both organizations have been operationally collaborating for over two years.
