NTT Security has partnered with Europol to prevent cybercrime worldwide. Specifically, it has concluded a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3).

The Memorandum of Understanding contains information on how the two organizations exchange strategic threat intelligence, cyber security trends and industry best practices. This is in line with NTT Security’s goal to share threat intelligence with industry partners and law enforcement agencies, in order to prevent cybercrime worldwide.

As part of the partnership, NTT Security now provides input for the annual Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA), Europol’s most important strategic report on emerging threats and developments in cybercrime. The report also contains the main recommendations for law enforcement, policy makers and supervisors.

In addition, NTT Security’s Global Threat Intelligence and Incident Center (GTIC) is part of EC3. In this way, the company hopes to strengthen its relationship with EC3, in order to also build trust through public-private partnerships.

Essential role

According to Kai Grunwitz, Senior Vice President EMEA at NTT Security, Europol relies on partnerships with private sector security specialists for advanced, strategic threat intelligence. The reason for this is that the organisation is active in all areas related to cybercrime.

Criminals are increasingly targeting the digital lives of citizens and businesses. That’s why it’s essential that law enforcement work closely with industry players around the world to create a secure Internet environment,” adds Steven Wilson, Head of EC3 at Europol.

NTT Security does not only work with Europol, but also with various other partners. These include the National Cyber Forensics and Training Alliance, Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers, Cyber Threat Alliance and the Forum of Incident Response Teams.
