Cyber alliance security firm Trend Micro.
Partying with Interpol to take down international -- cyber criminals now.
Under the new agreement Trend Micro will establish cyber training programs for the international police organization in an effort to curb the worldwide cyber pandemic.
And joining us from Washington -- that Trend Micro is vice president cyber security.
Tom -- a friend of the show thanks for being with us Tom.
So based on this deal first question is why Singapore.
Why Singapore most sensitive setting up the first side refuses out of there too.
Allow for collaboration on international investigations where you're dealing with here is really -- adoption of technology by organized crime.
Most major organized criminal syndicates the world from the Chinese triads the Japanese Yakuza to the drug cartels themselves.
Are using cyber in some capacity whether it's for counterintelligence or just for hacking purposes and we need international collaboration to -- this threat.
That seems like every time -- pay attention to this.
The main worst suspect changes.
I mean couple months of that -- talk about China hacking into a 140 different US companies sometimes for months without the company's knowing.
Then I heard a second report -- facts -- there some other developing nations that's -- report yesterday saying India.
Is this a distinctly international problem is it more of an Asian problems it is everywhere.
Well there -- no sovereign boundaries in cyberspace -- let's get Rio we just have to respect the fact of the rule of law really doesn't apply to cyberspace is -- we wish it was.
-- conjunction with that no one country can control cyberspace there's too many a symmetrical capabilities and too many weaponry out -- that allow for one or two actors to become more powerful than regimes in the states.
And what exactly when agents -- up going there what do you teach or are they sitting at -- -- -- or something.
Well -- -- in many different things I first saw how to actually identify when there's been intrusion how to follow the bread -- back to where the attacker might resides.
-- more importantly actually how to defend networks from persistent threats APCs -- digital insider threats and they exists within those networks.
You're Trend Micro has a unique position because we have 12100 -- researchers that are dedicated to look at the cyber landscape every day.
And with that we think we should give back and -- have a -- landscape.
You know we just spread chart to think about -- again showing some -- -- that you guys gave us for botnets by country had said for example the US has 28%.
That what did that mean it wasn't sure that -- 20% of the -- 35% for the US.
Of the world botnet botnets are a bad thing what what does a 35% figure recommend mercenary it's.
It's not necessarily that there's more hacking by US citizens what it means is that more of the US technological infrastructure has been colonized by some remote adversary and it's being utilized by some remote adversary to conduct crimes around the world.
So the countries that are most connected typically have this phenomenon where there are more people that are using their networks and they with -- -- Wow has been colonized by hackers how like that phrase that's a given person I've heard it thanks for being -- us today Tom Kelly I've been.
