APNIC staff participated at the inaugural INTERPOL Global Cybercrime Expert Group meeting held from 30 November to 1 December 2015.
More than 80 experts, from 30 economies and nine partner organizations, gathered at the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore to review INTERPOL’s current cybersecurity programs and provide advice for future activities.
According to INTERPOL, the aim of the expert group is to advise INTERPOL in policy formulation and the implementation of cyber programs and operations; to serve as a forum for the exchange of information and best practices; and to assist INTERPOL in developing a long-term cybersecurity strategy.
During the meeting, attendees were split into four expert groups to discuss the following themes – Strategy, Training, Forensics and Research.
APNIC activities included:
- Adli Wahid, APNIC’s Security Specialist, participated in the Research Group track, which discussed practical concepts that could be developed in the next few years to improve investigation, attribution and information sharing among INTERPOL members. The outcomes from suggested research themes should trigger research and development, and translate into useful training materials in the future.
