Trend Micro Partners with United Nations’ International Telecommunication Union to Provide Cybersecurity Support
November 2013 – Trend Micro Inc., a global leader in security software and solutions, announced its partnership with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations’ specialized agency for information and communication technologies, in support of its Global Cybersecurity Agenda.
This relationship will better equip ITU’s 193 Member States, as well as more than 700 private-sector entities and academic institutions with the threat expertise and resources to fight cyber threats globally.
ITU will have access to Trend Micro infographics and global threat reports, like the recently published TrendLabs Q3 2013 Security Roundup. According to the report, today’s threats thrive by staying undetected, raising concerns about the ongoing proliferation of Apple iOS phishing sites, as well as the sizable uptick in online banking malware. Monitoring these ongoing and future threat trends will aid organizations in creating strategies to prevent future attacks. Given the recent slate of website defacements and hacking instances in Southeast Asia, ITU stakeholders are now better positioned to safeguard their assets with this information.
The partnership also aims to promote Internet safety and create a safe online environment for children. In support of ITU’s initiatives on Child Online Protection, Trend Micro will continuously provide resources from its Internet and Safety for Kids & Families program.
Through this partnership, Trend Micro establishes its commitment to helping make the world a safe place for exchanging digital information.
