Business leaders looking to protect their cloud services against internet crime could be interested in the launch of a new scheme.
On Tuesday (July 5th), the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA) unveiled plans to provide increased resources for countries struggling to provide online security.
Working alongside businesses and law enforcement agencies, the organisation aims to allow governments with limited expertise to experience success in eradicating the issue.
The announcement comes after UK politicians injected £650 million funding into programmes working to improve the national infrastructure.
Prime minister David Cameron said: "The very nature of this threat calls for more than a national response, it demands a truly global response and that is what the ICSPA is all about."
Earlier this month, the ICSPA joined forces with European law enforcement agency Europol in a bid to tackle threats to internet security across the EU's 27 member states.
As part of the partnership, the agencies will aim to explore methods of accrediting specialised officials and provide advice for businesses looking to protect their assets.
