Microsoft hosts Cybercrime Enforcement Summit at Cybercrime Center

In an effort to find new ways to stay ahead of cybercriminals, Microsoft Corp. brought together the world's top cybercrime experts last week as part of its first-ever Cybercrime Enforcement Summit at its Cybercrime Center in Redmond.

More than 60 cybercrime experts from as far away as Qatar and Malaysia attended the summit – a two-day event that broke down barriers and laid the foundation for future cooperative cybercrime-fighting efforts. Attendees included federal, state and local law enforcement, policymakers, academics, private cybercrime professionals and child safety experts.

At the summit, Microsoft signed memorandums of understanding with Europol, the Organization of American States and FIS Global to increase collaboration to combat cybercrime.
