Today's cyber threats are becoming increasingly more targeted and
sophisticated with criminal networks operating across the world, coordinating
complex attacks against targets in a matter of minutes.

Due to the complexity of the cyber-threat landscape, cybercrime investigations
are profoundly different in nature to traditional crime, requiring high-level
technical expertise and large-scale cross-jurisdictional investigations. It is
essential that law enforcement prioritize resources, build
cross-jurisdictional and cross-sectorial collaboration in addition to
developing the technical expertise, tools and infrastructure required to
effectively combat threats and eventually enhance digital security.

In response, INTERPOL is establishing the INTERPOL Global Complex for
Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore in 2014, which will be the center of excellence
for cybercrime toward facilitating international cooperation. The IGCI will
seek to implement an alliance with multi-stakeholders, including Internet
security specialists from the private sector, to leverage their respective
expertise and resources for the benefit of global law enforcement agencies
fighting cybercrime.

Trend Micro, will support INTERPOL with its expertise in mitigating cyber
threats. On June 21, Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro met with Ronald K. Noble,
Secretary General of INTERPOL in Lyon, France to discuss the parameters of
this important endeavor.

Trend Micro will deliver training programs to INTERPOL, government and/or
police organizations in various participating countries, and major companies
that manage basic infrastructure, with corresponding expertise and best
practices to address emerging digital crime at the national and international
level. Training will encompass e-learning modules, classroom-based training
sessions, workshops and/or professional certifications, based on overall goals
and learning objectives.

The alliance with INTERPOL will enable Trend Micro to fulfill its corporate
vision of establishing "A World Safe for Exchanging Digital Information."
