NEC Contributes to INTERPOL DSC Training for Cybercrime Investigations

TOKYO, Mar 24, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced its contribution to INTERPOL's Digital Security Challenge (DSC) cybercrime investigation training held at the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore from Tuesday, March 14 to Friday, March 17, 2017.

This DSC was conducted by INTERPOL in order for police to increase their cybercrime investigation capabilities. Participants in the four-day session included cybercrime investigation officers from the police forces of INTERPOL member countries and experts in digital forensics.

Participants in this training aimed to identify a criminal based on a fictitious cybercrime through analysis of digital evidence. In addition, private companies sponsoring this event introduced technologies available for cybercrime investigation.

In cooperation with a subsidiary company, Cyber Defense Institute, NEC's support for the INTERPOL training based on a fictional cybercrime scenario, included the provision of information for analysis and the provision of an analysis environment for the investigation. Moreover, NEC delivered a lecture and conducted hands-on training about cutting-edge face recognition technology. By applying face recognition technology to cybercrime investigations, NEC showed how analysis of footage from a surveillance camera can be analyzed for the number of suspects to be narrowed down in a short amount of time.

"We are proud to have contributed to this DSC as a strategic INTERPOL partner," said Masakazu Yamashina, Senior Vice President, NEC Corporation. "NEC began cooperating with INTERPOL in cybersecurity measures in 2012, and we are conducting a variety of activities to confront the cyberattacks that are becoming increasingly complicated and sophisticated. We look forward to continuing our support for INTERPOL training of police and contributing to the achievement of strong global security."
