Launched on Tuesday in London, The International Cyber Security Protection Alliance(ICSPA) a body which unites governments, international businesses, Law enforcement agencies.It has been setup to fight cyber crime globally.
Some major companies like Mcafee and Trend Micro have already signed up. UK prime minister David Cameron said “Our government has already injected an additional £650m to help improve our national infrastructure and protect against cybercrime, but the very nature of this threat calls for more than a national response; it demands a truly global response and that is what the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance is all about,”
Crime Prevention Minister James Brokenshire said “Cybercrime is a truly global problem and to tackle it we need strong partnership between countries and across private and public sectors,”
One main goal of the ICSPA is to provide help to the countries like China that need the most assistance.
“You’ve got to go beyond Europe. We need to make sure this doesn’t turn into an all-English club,” said Rik Ferguson, director for security research at Trend Micro.
“For a country like China, where infrastructure is being abused, there’s no reason why they would not become a big part of ICSPA.”
