Digital Crime Center to be Opened during 2015 in Singapore

Interpol the international police agency is preparing to start a Digital Crime Center during 2015 which will operate from Singapore towards fighting cyber-crime, published globalpost.com dated September 30, 2014.

It's believed that the center is set to equip the agencies of law enforcement with methodologies and software for fighting the most recent trends in cyber-crime, while even enable private sectors to gain information from the center so as for strengthening work vis-à-vis online crime.

Minister S Iswaran during the Home Affairs Ministry's handing over of the just ready Digital Crime Center complex to Interpol at the Office of the Prime Minister said that considering how the threat from cyber-crime was of a complicated and evolving nature, it was easily discernable that the new investigating agency would immensely help the global police force.

Iswaran added that the center would have state-of-art technologies as well as systems after shifting into the just ready 'IGCI' (Interpol Global Complex for Innovation) that would begin operation in 2015. Currently, it's working from an office providing transitional support based in Singapore.

According to General Ronald Noble Secretary of Interpol while delivering a lecture at Digital Crime Center's new building, the IGCI would work solely for countering cyber-crime. Malaysiandigest.com published this, September 30, 2014.

Senior Interpol officers along with Noble were present at the building's handover function to the agency from Singapore, the building situated in Lyon a French city.

Noble said his agency believed that if police forces of its member countries were provided training when the latest style of offences were rampant, it should form IGCI's core element.

Singapore, which is the financial capital of Southeast Asia, in August 2014, declared novel steps for enhancing cyber-security for stopping renewed assaults against government websites that also included the country's president and PM's portals.

Recently, RSA a computer security company in USA reported that phishing campaigns described as treacherous e-mail scams resulted in global loss of USD5.9bn to organizations during 2013.

The company stated that malevolent mobile applications, malware attacks and money-laundering executed via digital currencies constituted the three most prevalent trends of cyber-crime. Malaysiandigest.com published this.
