Thursday 1 March 2018 | 14:43 CET | News

The Public Prosecutor's Office of the State of Sao Paulo (MPSP) and Microsoft Brasil have announced a partnership to combat cybercrime. Their agreement establishes joint initiatives aimed at tackling cybercrime, focusing initially on training promoters, cooperation between organisations and public information.

Through the partnership, MPSP promoters will participate in training with experts from the Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) at Microsoft to use tools that may contribute to investigative processes such as computer forensics, cloud computing and Big Data, and mechanisms for the prevention and mitigation of computer crimes.

For its part, Microsoft will make available to MPSP reports on trends in new malware and vulnerabilities reported by its global security team. The idea is that the MPSP employs this exchange of knowledge in investigations carried out by the institution into online crime.
