The 1st INTERPOL Information Security Conference entitled "Global Cooperation Today for InfoSec Risks Tomorrow" opened Wednesday at Hong Kong Police Headquarters.

About 300 representatives comprising law enforcement representatives, scholars and industry leaders from 56 countries and regions were drawn to the conference co-hosted by Hong Kong Police and INTERPOL, where they will address information security issues in an international context with emphasis on relevant preventive measures and incident responses.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said that INTERPOL was at a favorable position to develop global information security standard and they would upgrade their tools and ability to fight against crimes related to information technology.

Noble noted that as a bridge between police and information technology industry, INTERPOL would continue to push ahead with the exchange of experiences, which could help enhance the strength of dealing with challenges brought by internet crime.

Commissioner of Hong Kong Police Tang King-shing said that information technology brought convenience to people's daily life but was at the same time posing risks of internet crimes.

He emphasized that global cooperation was important to the tackling of crimes arising from information security problems.

During the three-day conference, there will be keynote addresses, panel discussions and case studies on issues related to response strategies, computer forensics, information infrastructure protection, and standards and laws.
