Norton has announced the launch of a cybersecurity institute, which will bring together the company, law enforcement and consumer safety groups to fight cyber crime around the world.
“Cyber crime is a global epidemic that can“™t be solved by one company or law enforcement agency alone; keeping the Internet safe is a shared responsibility,“ Adam Palmer, Norton’s lead cybersecurity adviser, said in a release. “Through training and global collaboration, the Norton Cybersecurity Institute will help law enforcement in their efforts to catch and prosecute cyber criminals successfully.“
The Norton Cybersecurity Institute will start rolling out programs and resources to aid law enforcement in the fight against cyber crime and to support consumers who have been victims of cyber crime. These efforts will include a two-day, biannual course for U.S. state attorneys general pursuing cyber crime cases, global sponsorships of law enforcement meetings and training conferences worldwide, as well as joint conferences and initiatives with the National Cyber Forensics & Training Alliance.
“There is a real lack of cyber crime education for judges, law enforcement and prosecutorial staff in the U.S,“ said Thomas Clancy, director of the National Center for Justice and the Rule of Law. “Prosecutors, investigators and judges are on the front lines every day. They need access to the very latest information, effective knowledge sharing and international best practices to do their jobs and keep the Internet safe for everyone. The National Center of Justice and the Rule of Law is proud to be part of this leading cross-industry initiative to fight cyber crime.“
