As UK Police Cyber Spending Soars, Let’s Not Forget the Value of Public-Private Partnerships

by Bharat Mistry

UK police forces have spent more than £1.3m on cybercrime training over the past three years, according to a new thinktank report. This is great to see, especially considering the escalating threat to consumers and businesses as the nation and its economy become increasingly dependent on digital systems.

That’s why Trend Micro has announced a major new partnership with Panasonic which will tap the expertise of both companies to create a leading cybersecurity solution for connected cars. Continue reading
