Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Capgemini, a specialist in consulting, technology services and digital transformation.
The MoU includes the development of cyber simulation exercises, capacity building, and collaborating on prevention and awareness campaigns. As a first step, Capgemini joined the No More Ransom Project, of which EC3 is a founding member, as a supporting partner.
The Acting Head of EC3, Fernando Ruiz, said: “Finding innovative solutions to tackle cyber threats is an ongoing effort between law enforcement and private partners. Our collaboration with Capgemini is an excellent step forward in this direction. We aim to combine our knowledge and expertise to achieve a common goal: disrupting the online criminal business model.”
Lout van Montfort, Executive Vice President of Capgemini’s Cloud Infrastructure Services Benelux, said: “Protecting businesses, governments and citizens within the European Union from cyber threats requires cross-sectoral collaboration. As a company with a strong global presence, we aim to actively contribute to increasing the cyber resilience of the European landscape. The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding with Europol allows us to exchange expertise and best practices, so that we can work together towards a cyber secure Europe.”
