Bitdefender helps Community Emergency Response Team fight cybercrimes

Software security company Bitdefender plans to help CERT and police authorities in their growing battle against organized cyberattacks

Security software company Bitdefender plans to become more proactive in helping Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and police authorities fight cybercrimes. The company hopes its botnet mapping and malware reverse-engineering will provide a method to identify - and disrupt - cyberattacks before they victimize users. Bitdefender has experience working with law enforcement, so disabling command and control servers, with the help of forensic analysis, also is possible.

Here is what Catalin Cosoi, Bitdefender Chief Security Strategist, in a press statement: " Bitdefender has been in the fight against cyber crime since the beginning, so we find ourselves with more knowledge and capabilities than we can use in our regular business. We want to use that capacity and expertise to contribute to bolster the work of other well-meaning groups who are seeking to make the internet a cleaner, safer place to work, play and socialize."

 

There is an ongoing fight against cyberattacks, though many companies are simply overwhelmed due to increasingly sophisticated attacks. The U.S. federal government is targeting organized cybercriminal groups, but tend to only operate in damage control after a breach occurs.
