KNIGHTSBRIDGE CASTLE ADMITTED TO CYBERCOP PROGRAM
In our continuing effort to fight the many crimes of identity theft, KnightsBridge Castle’s CEO has been admitted to the national CyberCop program. The CyberCop program is part of the InfraGard National Members Alliance (INMA or “InfraGard”), the largest national network of private sector, FBI- vetted subject matter experts (SMEs) for critical infrastructure protection. KnightsBridge Castle will begin using its CyberCop portal beginning today to facilitate secure communication with other InfraGard members, local chapters and local, state and Federal government agencies.
InfraGard’s goal is to promote ongoing dialogue and timely communication between its members and local, state and federal government and law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). InfraGard members provide subject matter expertise to federal agencies that enhances their ability to secure and protect our nation’s critical infrastructures from terrorism and other crimes.
“Identity theft is a major threat to our personal welfare and to our national security” said Tim Logan CEO of KinightsBridge Castle. “Not only do common criminals steal identities, but so do international drug cartels, organized crime groups, and terrorists. We are proud to participate in this program and to extend our protective service to cover a wider range of crimes” he concluded.
The CyberCop portal was designed to provide a secure, Web-based environment to promote and facilitate the communication of sensitive information among a cohesive network of law enforcement, homeland defense and first responder professionals from all levels of government - including international, federal, state and local - and the private sector. InfraGard uses the CyberCop portal to facilitate communications with its approximately 12,000 active members while also providing dedicated portal space for InfraGard partners like KnightsBridge Castle and affiliated organizations as well as for each of InfraGard’s 84 local chapters. Through CyberCop, InfraGard participants can control access to their information down to the chapter and individual level.
CyberCop, an ESP-coined term, refers to computer forensic experts, law enforcement and emergency responders that use the Internet to collaborate and share information with one another. Due to various geographic, system, political and monetary barriers, these individuals are rarely able to securely engage one another to share case information and to exchange best practices and lessons learned. As a result, The ESP Group created this secure portal which is committed to providing a safe and secure environment where ideas can be freely exchanged to aid individual efforts and to foster cooperative efforts in the fight against crime, terrorism and the security of the nation.
