NEC Contributes to INTERPOL's Cybercrime Investigation Training
- Digital Security Challenge event held in Vienna -

TOKYO, Feb 22, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced contributions to INTERPOL's Digital Security Challenge (DSC) cybercrime investigation event held in Vienna, Austria, from February 19 to 21, 2018.

This event was conducted for police of INTERPOL member countries to increase their cybercrime investigation capabilities. This was the third time the event was held, following sessions in Singapore in 2016 and 2017.

On this occasion, participants from 27 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East and South America received cybercrime investigation training, in which they took part in a series of educational courses, from analyzing cyberspace evidence to identifying criminals, based on fictitious cybercrime scenarios. In addition, a variety of private companies provided training sessions through the introduction of technologies that assist in cybercrime investigation.

In cooperation with a subsidiary that specializes in security, Cyber Defense Institute, Inc., NEC supported the creation of fictitious scenarios used in the cybercrime investigation training, the development of data that could be the target of analysis, such as a terminal infected with malware, provision of an analysis environment for the investigation, and implementation of the event. This is in addition to NEC's delivery of a lecture on the emerging threat of IoT botnets.

In consideration of recent cyberattacks, where the misuse of IoT devices is causing greater damage, NEC carried out a training program that included heavier emphasis on the identification of attack techniques and their sources.
