CYBERPOL & ECIPS MOVES HQ BACK TO UNITED KINGDOM FOLLOWING GENERAL ASSEMBLY HELD IN LIGHT OF “BREXIT”!

The President of CYBERPOL, Mr. Ricardo Baretzky has advised that following the move back to the UK, the door remains open for all countries internationally along with EU member states to join CYBERPOL in its quest to make the Internet a safer environment for all.
The newly appointed Secretary General of CYBERPOL Mr. Jay McGowan informed media sources that CYBERPOL is on track to become a significant force, with applications to join increasing as the organisations reputation and objectives become main stream.
“The need for cross boarder collaboration in the fight against the ever growing risk and level of sophistication deployed by online adversaries requires a coordinated effort, CYBERPOL provides a vehicle to make this happen” Mike Loginov C|CISO, CEO Ascot Barclay Group.
The European Centre for Information Policy and Security ECIPS co-hosted the very first International CYBERPOL Cyber Security Summit in Brussels on the 17th and 18th November 2015. The event received much attention and was attended by several officials from the international community. CYBERPOL continues to grow steadily with official representatives now across eight countries; including the Unites States, United Kingdom, Denmark, Africa, Hungary and Italy.
