The International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA) has joined forces with the European Law Enforcement Agency (Europol) to address cybercrime activity across the EU. The partnership was formed to “collaborate in ways which will start to have a real impact on the unprecedented levels of cyber criminality which [are] causing significant harm to businesses and citizens on a global scale,” said Rob Wainwright, director of Europol.
Along with the collboration with Europol, ICSPA has also discussed ways to combat cybercrime with other countries such as the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Their ultimate goal is to achieve a unifed approach in tacking cybercrime. As the Prime Minister of Great Britain says; we need a “truly global response” in fighting cybercrime, and that is exactly what ICSPA is trying to achieve.
Europe is currently sorting out funding to help ICSPA which will hopefully bring around big changes to the way we approach cyber security.
