Preventing Cybercrime Through Collaboration and Information Sharing

Cybercrime is not something that any one entity can tackle alone, and increasingly, companies are understanding the importance of information sharing in preventing successful cyberattacks.

In our recent State of Cybersecurity in Asia-Pacific survey, 44 per cent of organisations across the region have already started sharing threat information with other companies in their industry. The exposure of malicious cyber actors and their techniques plays an important role in changing their behavior. The more broadly information about threats is shared, the more efficiently organisations can work to prevent cyberattacks.

This week, we became the first cybersecurity company to sign a Data Exchange Agreement (DEA) with INTERPOL. Aimed to combat criminal trends in cyberspace, cyberthreats and cybercrime, this agreement marks a mutual commitment to openly share threat intelligence and equip law enforcement officers with powerful information needed to prevent cybercrime.

In addition to our involvement in the Cyber Threat Alliance and our role earlier this year in the INTERPOL-led operation targeting cybercrime across the ASEAN region, this agreement underscores our commitment to threat intelligence sharing.
