CANCUN, MEXICO -- Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit 2012 -- One of the many challenges faced by law enforcement worldwide in investigating cybercrime cases is the ability to efficiently share intelligence among different nations and to disseminate it to the appropriate local police units.

Michael Moran, director of cybersecurity and cybercrime for INTERPOL, says the planned opening of the INTERPOL Global Complex in Singapore in 2014 is crucial to improving global cooperation among law enforcement. Moran says the organization is working on putting in place a secure online presence for police worldwide to work together on cybercrime cases, which often crisscross multiple regions and geographic jurisdictions.

"The Confickr Working Group report called for a formalization to do these jobs. We are trying to achieve that in Singapore," Moran said yesterday in a presentation here at the Kaspersky Lab Security Analyst Summit 2012. This would formalize and better coordinate investigations of cybercrime among law enforcement worldwide including the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, academia, and vendors.

Today, local police forces aren't typically, nor do they have the resources and expertise to move forward on cybercrime cases, Moran said. "They can't afford to pay the young geeks" who have the expertise.
