The cyber threat landscape is a hostile and ever changing place – and the solutions need to keep evolving too. The ICSPA is always looking to develop new and innovative approaches to make the world a safer, more secure place in which we can live our lives and grow our businesses. The ICSPA and its member companies recognise that in order to execute the ICSPA mission to reduce harm from cyber crime, a range of actions need to be identified and supported. Below are just some of the projects we have been engaged in to date;
Cyber Crime & Security Impact Studies
Our first was conducted in Canada and reported upon early in 2013. Future studies, carried out by the ICSPA with Government and private sector funding support, will be designed to provide governments and business communities with an independent assessment of the scope and nature of cyber crime and cyber security attacks targeted against its business communities.
Working in Ghana
In February 2012, we began implementing our International Cybercrime Assistance Programme in Ghana – working with the Ghanaian Government and our partners in the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency and the ITU, to support the Commonwealth Cybercrime Initiative. This will be an ongoing project with far-reaching beneficial implications for the future growth and economic stability of Ghana, its government, businesses and citizens.
Productive Events in Washington DC
With industry, law enforcement, security agencies and the US Government (DHS, Department of Justice and State Department), supported by the British Embassy.
An ICSPA Study into the likely evolution of cybercrime up to the year 2020 in partnership with Europol, ENISA, the City of London Police, Atos, McAfee, CGI Canada, Trend Micro, Cassidian and Visa. Project 2020 is an ongoing international effort to provide foresight on developments in cybercrime and related issues, drawing attention to key considerations for decision makers, manufacturers and service providers.
CyberFit for 2020
A programme designed to deliver to nations that take part, practical cyber awareness, education and training packages, campaigns and technical solutions to reduce the harm caused to citizens and business communities from cyber crime and cyber security attack
