Knowledge exchange with the State Criminal Police Office of North Rhine-Westphalia in Düsseldorf
Back in March this year, an initial knowledge exchange took place between the teams from Airbus Protect and the State Criminal Police Office of North Rhine-Westphalia (LKA NRW), with both being members of the German Federal Association for Information Technology and Telecommunications, Bitkom.
